Manufacturer: Merck Animal Health

COCCIDIOSIS VACCINE

Live Oocysts

DIRECTIONS FOR USE, READ CAREFULLY

Description

This product contains live oocysts of the following species of coccidia: E. acervulina, E. maxima, E. maxima MFP, E. mivati, and E. tenella.

Coccivac-B52 Indications For Use

For vaccination of healthy chickens at one day of age by spray cabinet administration as an aid in the prevention of coccidiosis due to E. mivati and E. tenella and as an aid in the reduction of lesions related to E. acervulina and E. maxima.

Vaccination Programs

Many factors must be considered in determining the proper vaccination program for a particular farm or poultry operation. To be fully effective, the vaccine must be administered to healthy receptive chickens held in a proper environment under good management. In addition, the response may be modified by the age of the chickens and their immune status. Seldom does one vaccination under field conditions produce complete protection for all individuals in a given flock. The amount of protection required will vary with the type of operation and the degree of exposure that a flock is likely to encounter. For these reasons a program of periodic revaccination may be required.

Spray Cabinet Administration

FOR CHICKENS 1 DAY OF AGE

The vaccine should be prepared (or mixed) at the rate of 210 ml of distilled water per 1000 doses of vaccine. Each 100 chicks should receive 21 ml of vaccine solution (dye may be added as a marker).

Full Directions for use of the Spray Cabinet are available from the Company.

Coccivac-B52 Caution

Consult your poultry pathologist for further recommendations based on conditions existing in your area at any given time. This product is not ordinarily recommended for use with prestarter or starter feeds containing coccidiostats. Birds must have access to their droppings as reinfection is required to induce immunity.

1. VACCINATE ONLY HEALTHY CHICKENS. Although disease may not be evident, other disease conditions may cause complications or reduce immunity.

2. Use entire contents when first opened.

3. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter.

4. Store at 2° to 7° C (35° to 45° F). Do not freeze.
