Bovine Rota-Coronavirus Vaccine

Modified Live Virus

For veterinary use only

For vaccination of healthy newborn calves or pregnant cows as an aid in preventing diarrhea caused by bovine rotavirus and bovine coronavirus.

Directions For Use

Aseptically rehydrate the freeze-dried vaccine with the sterile diluent provided, shake well, and administer 3 mL without delay. Calves: Remove needle from syringe and administer a single 3-mL dose into the back of the calf’s mouth. Vaccination should occur as soon as possible after birth because susceptible calves are at risk as soon as they are born. Vaccination of calves older than 1 day may not be effective. Cows: Healthy cows should receive two 3-mL intramuscular doses administered 3-6 weeks apart during late pregnancy. Ideally, the second dose should be administered within 30 days prior to calving. In accordance with Beef Quality Assurance guidelines, this product should be administered in the muscular region of the neck. Cows should be revaccinated with 2 doses during each subsequent pregnancy.


Store at 2°-7°C. Do not freeze. Use entire contents when first opened. Sterilized syringes and needles should be used to administer this vaccine. Do not sterilize with chemicals because traces of disinfectant may inactivate the vaccine. Burn containers and all unused contents. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. Contains gentamicin as preservative. As with many vaccines, anaphylaxis may occur after use. Initial antidote of epinephrine is recommended and should be followed with appropriate supportive therapy.
