Directions For Use

BURSAL DISEASE VACCINE

LIVE VIRUS

For use in animals only

Recommendation for use: This is a live virus vaccine containing infectious bursal disease virus propagated in chicken embryos recommended as an aid in the prevention of infectious bursal disease (Gumboro) in chickens. When administered to susceptible chickens, the vaccine stimulates immunity. It is recommended for administration by the drinking water route.

In chicks with no detectable maternal antibodies, one vaccination at 10 days of age is recommended. In chicks with maternal antibodies, 2 vaccinations are recommended, one at 10-14 days of age and the second at 2-3 weeks after the first vaccination. Consult with a veterinarian before vaccinating chickens suspected of having been recently exposed to infectious bursal disease. Consult with a veterinarian for recommendations on revaccination based on conditions existing in your area at any given time.

Drinking water administration: Remove the overseal and stopper from the vaccine vial and add clean non-sanitized water to it. Shake well and pour the vial contents into a container of non-sanitized water. Dilute the vaccine as outlined in the chart below. A dried skim milk powder should be used as a vaccine stabilizer at the rate of 8.0 g per gallon (2.1 g per liter) of drinking water. Add the skim milk powder to the water prior to reconstitution of the vaccine. Remove medication or sanitizers from the drinking water 24 hours before and 24 hours after vaccination. Rinse waterers with clean non-sanitized water. Remove water from chicks at least 2 hours before vaccination. Provide adequate space so that at least 2/3 of the birds can drink at one time. Add vaccine mixture to the water as per the following chart:

Provide no other drinking water until all vaccine has been consumed.

Precautions

Store at 2° to 8°C (35° to 46°F).

Vaccinate only healthy birds.

This vaccine is not effective when chickens are derived from strongly immune parent stock. Therefore, the immune status of the flock to be vaccinated should be determined prior to using this vaccine. Use this vaccine when parental antibody to infectious bursal disease virus (Gumboro disease) is at its minimum. While immunity begins to develop immediately, it generally requires 10 days to 2 weeks for chickens to establish immunity to Gumboro disease following vaccination, during which time they should not be placed in contaminated premises or otherwise exposed to Gumboro disease.

All 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 caretakers are provided for the vaccinated and unvaccinated lots of chickens.

If there are susceptible laying chickens on the premises there is a possibility that the virus might spread from the vaccinated to the susceptible chickens and affect egg production.

Use entire contents when a vial is first opened.

Inactivate unused contents before disposal.

Do not mix with other products, except as specified on the label.

Keep permanent vaccination records, including vaccine serial number.

Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter.

Distribution in each State shall be limited to authorized recipients designated by proper State officials--under such additional conditions as these authorities may require.

Recommended use shall be restricted to premises having a history of the disease.

Care should be taken to avoid contaminating hands, eyes and clothing with the vaccine.

Contains gentamicin as a preservative.
