AE-Pox Vac is recommended as an aid in the prevention of avian encephalomyelitis and fowl pox when it is administered as directed to healthy pullets that have reached the ages between eight weeks and four weeks before the start of egg production.

Directions For Use

1. Rehydrate 1 vial of vaccine with 1 vial of diluent.

2. Remove aluminum seal and rubber stopper from vaccine vial and from diluent vial. Avoid contamination of the stoppers and the vial’s contents.

3. Pour approximately one-half the diluent into the vaccine vial. Replace stopper and shake gently until contents are dissolved.

4. Pour all the reconstituted vaccine back into the remaining diluent bottle. Replace diluent stopper and gently mix. The vaccine is then ready to use.


1. Hold bird, spreading the underside of the wing upwards.

2. Dip the vaccinator into the vaccine, wetting both needles.

3. Puncture the vaccine-laden needles through the web of the wing, avoiding blood vessels, bones and wing muscles.

4. Attempt to use all of the vaccine from 1 vial within 1 hour after rehydration.

How Takes Appear

A normal take after using AE-Pox Vac includes an initial swelling at the vaccination site on the fourth day. The swelling increases during the next 5 days until a scab is formed. Revaccinate birds not showing takes.

This product should be stored, transported and administered in accordance with the instructions and directions.
