READ IN FULL

Description

CLONEVAC D-78® contains an intermediate strain of Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD) Virus propagated in SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) substrates. The strain was developed from a bursal disease field isolate.

Clonevac D-78 Indications For Use

CLONEVAC D-78®, a live virus vaccine, is indicated for initial vaccination of healthy chickens two (2) weeks of age or older via drinking water or one (1) day of age or older via coarse spray for the prevention of infectious bursal disease (IBD) - also known as Gumboro Disease. The vaccine may also be used for priming of breeder replacement pullets. If chickens are vaccinated earlier than two weeks of age, revaccination at four weeks may be indicated for optimum protection.

Vaccination Programs

Immune status, general health, and field exposure to IBD virus must be assessed to develop an effective program. Immunological priming of breeder replacement chickens can be accomplished at 10 to 12 weeks of age, followed by the use of an inactivated vaccine at 18-20 weeks of age.

Preparation Of Vaccine

For Drinking Water or Coarse Spray Use

PRODUCT CODE 051088

DO NOT OPEN AND MIX THE VACCINE UNTIL READY TO BEGIN VACCINATION. USE VACCINE IMMEDIATELY AFTER MIXING.

1. Remove the tear-off seal and stopper from the vial containing the dried vaccine.

2. Carefully pour clean, cool, non-chlorinated tap water into vial until the vial is approximately two-thirds full.

3. Insert the rubber stopper and shake vigorously until all material is dissolved.

4. The vaccine is now ready for use in accordance with directions below. For the best results, be sure to follow directions carefully!

Drinking Water Administration

For chickens two weeks of age or older

1. Do not use any disinfectants in the drinking water 48 hours before vaccinating and for 24 hours after vaccination.

2. Withhold the water from the chickens until they are thirsty. Withholding periods will vary from 2 to 12 hours according to age of chickens and climatic conditions.

3. Scrub waterers and rinse thoroughly with fresh, clean water. Do not use disinfectants for cleaning the waterers.

4. Rehydrate the vaccine as directed above.

5. Mix rehydrated vaccine with clean, cool, non-chlorinated tap water in accordance with the following chart.

As an aid in preserving the virus, 3.2 ounces (85 mL) of non-fat powdered milk may be added with each 10 gallons of water used for mixing vaccine. Add the dried milk first and mix until dissolved. Then add the rehydrated vaccine from the vial and mix thoroughly.

6. Distribute the vaccine solution, as prepared above, among the waterers provided for the chickens. Avoid placing waterers in direct sunlight.

2. Add the prepared vaccine solution to reservoir on the sprayer.
