This treatment applies to the following species:
Company: Intervet/Merck Animal Health

BURSAL DISEASE-REOVIRUS VACCINE, Standard & Variant, Killed Virus

This vaccine is prepared using specific pathogen free (SPF) or approved substrates and contains Standard, GLS, and Delaware (A and E) strains of infectious bursal disease virus, and two strains of avian reovirus (1733 and 2408), inactivated and suspended in the aqueous phase of an oil adjuvant emulsion.

Breedervac Reo-Plus Indications

This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy chickens 3 weeks of age or older against tenosynovitis caused by Avian Reovirus, and to provide passive immunity against Infectious Bursal Disease (Standard; Delaware and GLS Variants) and malabsorption caused by Avian Reovirus to progeny. Duration of immunity has not been established. For more information regarding efficacy and safety data, see productdata.aphis.usda.gov.

ADMINISTRATION: Allow the vaccine to reach ambient temperature, 16° to 27°C (60° to 80°F), shake well before use and periodically during use. Inject 0.5 ml intramuscularly or subcutaneously in chickens using an 18-gauge x 1/2” or 1/4” needle.

The use of any inactivated vaccine may cause false positive results on Mycoplasma plate tests. Avoid Mycoplasma testing prior to ten weeks post-vaccination.

VACCINATION PROGRAM: Although this vaccine can be used for primary vaccination at three weeks of age or older, available evidence suggests that the best protection is obtained when it is used for revaccination of chickens previously immunized (primed) with the same type of live virus vaccines.

Example: Breeder chickens.

Primary vaccination with modified live mild avian reovirus vaccine prior to 12 weeks of age.

Primary vaccination with live bursal disease vaccine prior to 12 weeks of age.

Primary vaccination with live Newcastle and bronchitis vaccines on at least two occasions prior to 12 weeks of age.

These primary vaccinations would then be followed by vaccination with BREEDERVAC REO-PLUS at 16-22 weeks of age. A minimum of four weeks should elapse between the last live virus priming and injection with BREEDERVAC REO-PLUS. Local conditions must be taken into consideration and, where necessary, veterinary advice should be sought.

IMMUNITY: It is evident that for optimal protection, preceding vaccination with live vaccines (priming) should have taken place. Generally, in flocks vaccinated with BREEDERVAC REO-PLUS, a protective level of immunity will be achieved with only small variations between individual chickens.

CAUTIONS:

1. TO AVOID HUMAN INJECTION, EXTREME CAUTION SHOULD BE USED WHEN INJECTING ANY OIL EMULSION VACCINE. ACCIDENTAL HUMAN INJECTION MAY CAUSE SERIOUS LOCAL REACTIONS. CONTACT A PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY IF ACCIDENTAL HUMAN INJECTION OCCURS.

2. Do not administer this vaccine during the critical egg laying period from onset until after peak production. Administration of this product during the lay period may result in a drop in egg production.

3. Injection of inactivated vaccine into breast muscle may create processing plant problems under certain conditions.

4. Ensure that vaccination equipment is clean and sterile before use.

5. Do not use vaccination equipment with rubber parts, as the oil emulsion may attack certain types of rubber.

6. Use entire contents when first opened.

7. Do not vaccinate chickens within 42 days before slaughter.

8. Store at 2° to 8°C (35° to 46°F) in the dark. Do not freeze.

9. Do not mix with other products.

10. In case of human exposure, contact a physician.

11. Contains gentamicin, neomycin and thimerosal as preservatives.

12. FOR ANIMAL USE ONLY
