AVIAN ENCEPHALOMYELITIS-FOWL POX VACCINE, LIVE VIRUS
Directions For Use
FOR VETERINARY USE ONLY
Recommendations for use: This product is a live virus vaccine of chicken embryo origin manufactured from SPF (Specific pathogen Free) eggs for the vaccination of chickens as an aid in the prevention of avian encephalomyelitis and fowl pox. When administered to susceptible chickens, a mild infection results, which stimulates immunity. No vaccine confers immediate protection. While immunity begins to develop immediately, it takes 2 to 3 weeks for chickens to establish maximum immunity to fowl pox and avian encephalomyelitis following vaccination, during which time they should not be placed in contaminated premises nor otherwise exposed to avian encephalomyelitis and fowl pox.
This vaccine is for wing-web application to chickens 12 weeks of age and older. It is used in breeder replacements and commercial layers in areas where avian encephalomyelitis and fowl pox are known to exist.
Preparation of vaccine for wing web application:
500 DOSES - REHYDRATE TO 5 ML
1000 DOSES - REHYDRATE TO 10 ML
Remove aluminum overseal and stopper from the vaccine bottle and pour part of the diluent into the vaccine bottle. Replace the rubber stopper, shake well and pour the vaccine back into the remaining diluent in the diluent bottle and shake vigorously. The vaccine is now ready for wing web use.
Method of vaccination: Vaccination is accomplished by dipping the double needle in the mixed vaccine and piercing the “web of the wing” from the underside. Do not apply through feathers, muscle or bone. The applicator must be re-dipped between each application. Chickens from the flock should be examined for evidence of a “take” to ensure that the vaccine was applied properly. The evidence of a successful vaccination will appear at the point of vaccination within 7 to 10 days after vaccination. Brownish, black scabs will be found on both the under and upper surfaces of the web of the wing through which the needle vaccination was thrust.
StorageKeep vaccine between 2-7°C (35-45°F).
PrecautionsAll susceptible chickens on any farm should be vaccinated at the same time. If this is not possible, individual lots may be vaccinated if strict isolation and separate caretakers are provided for the vaccinated and unvaccinated lots of chickens.
Care should be taken to avoid contaminating your hands, eyes and clothing with vaccine.
