Immunity may be provided against the beta and epsilon toxins elaborated by Clostridium perfringens Type B. This immunity is derived from the combination of Type C (beta) and Type D (epsilon) fractions.

Composition

Dosage: Using aseptic technique, inject a single 2 mL dose subcutaneously. A 2 mL booster dose is recommended annually. Calves vaccinated under 3 months of age should be vaccinated at weaning or 4-6 months of age.

Precautions

Store at 35°-45°F (2°-7°C). Avoid freezing. Shake well before using. Use entire contents when first opened. Do not vaccinate within 60 days of slaughter. Swelling at the injection site may occur. Anaphylactoid reactions may occur. Antidote: Epinephrine.
