Manufacturer: L.A.H.I.



Directions For Use

Recommendations for use: This product is a mild live virus vaccine of chicken tissue culture origin manufactured from SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) eggs for use as an aid in the prevention of fowl pox in healthy baby chicks, as well as, growing birds. When administered to susceptible chickens, a mild form of the disease results, which stimulates immunity. No vaccine confers immediate protection against fowl pox. While immunity begins to develop immediately, it takes 2 to 3 weeks for chickens to establish maximum immunity to fowl pox following vaccination, during which time they should not be placed in contaminated premises or otherwise exposed to fowl pox.

This vaccine is for administration to chickens one day of age or older. For meat birds and laying replacements, this product may be administered from one day to 10 weeks of age. For replacement chickens, revaccination with Lohmann’s Fowl Pox Vaccine (AviPro® PDX CEO, chicken embryo origin) is recommended before the initiation of lay.

Preparation Of Vaccine For Wing Web Application:


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.


Store vaccine between 2-7°C (35-45°F).


All susceptible chickens on a 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 the vaccine. The vaccine must be prepared and administered as directed to obtain best results.
