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 in the diluent bottle. Replace diluent stopper and gently mix. The vaccine is then ready for use.

5. Hold individual bird and spread wing with the underside facing upwards.

6. Dip the vaccinator tool into the vaccine. Take care that the channels of the needles are immersed.

7. Stick the vaccine-laden needles through the membrane, or web, of the wing, avoiding blood vessels, bones, and wing muscles.

8. Attempt to use all of the vaccine from 1 vial within 1 hour after rehydrating.


The usual take consists of some swelling at the site of the puncture as early as the fourth day following vaccination. The swelling may increase during the next 5 days, and a scab may form at the site.


Do not expose the vaccine to either direct sunlight or extreme heat during the vaccinating procedure.

The vaccine should not be allowed to touch the feathers, the head of the chicken, or the bird’s skin (except at the site of vaccination).

Contains gentamicin as a preservative.


If given to laying flocks, this live-virus vaccine could cause a significant or even serious drop in egg production - often lasting 10 days to 2 weeks. Eggs for hatching should not be taken from the flock until 4 weeks have passed following vaccination. Do not vaccinate or expose chicks under 3 weeks of age, sick or debilitated birds, or birds under stress.
