NEWCASTLE-BRONCHITIS VACCINE

B1 Type, C2 Strain, Mass Type, Live Virus

DIRECTIONS FOR USE, READ CAREFULLY

Description

This live virus vaccine is prepared from a B1 Type C2 Strain of Newcastle disease virus and a mild Massachusetts strain of Infectious Bronchitis virus. The viruses have been propagated using SPF substrates.

Newhatch-C2-M Indications For Use

This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy chickens 1 day of age or older against Newcastle disease and infectious bronchitis virus, Massachusetts type. Duration of immunity has not been established. For more information regarding efficacy and safety data, see productdata.aphis.usda.gov.

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.

Preparation Of Vaccine

FOR COARSE SPRAY

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 lyophilized vaccine.

2. Carefully pour clean, cool, non-chlorinated tap water into the vaccine 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 coarse spray use in accordance with the following directions. For best results, be sure to follow directions carefully!

Coarse Spray Administration

FOR CHICKENS ONE DAY OF AGE OR OLDER

Calculate the water volume needed. For example, a machine which dispenses 21 ml to a box of 100 chickens - total volume for 10,000 doses is 2,100 ml of non-chlorinated water. For coarse spray in chicken houses, follow manufacturer’s direction for the particular spray machine. Add rehydrated vaccine and mix thoroughly.
