Description

This live virus vaccine contains a modified strain of Georgia 98 Infectious Bronchitis Virus. The virus is grown in chicken embryos and combined with stabilizing agents. The product is supplied as a lyophilized vaccine contained in sealed vials.

INDICATIONS FOR USE: For use in chickens at 1 day of age or older by the coarse spray route of administration as an aid in preventing disease due to infectious bronchitis.

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.

Precautions

ONLY VACCINATE HEALTHY CHICKENS

Consult your poultry pathologist for further recommendations based on conditions existing in your area at any given time.

Chickens should not be placed on contaminated premises. Exposure should be avoided immediately after vaccination, because it takes up to 10 days to develop resistance.

All susceptible chickens on the same premises should be vaccinated at the same time. If this is not possible, then strict isolation and separate caretakers should be employed for non-vaccinated units. Efforts should be taken to reduce stress conditions at the time the vaccine is administered.

Warning

Care should be exercised to prevent contaminating your hands, eyes and clothing with the vaccine.

PREPARATION OF THE VACCINE:

COARSE SPRAY ADMINISTRATION

1. Assemble the vaccine and equipment needed to vaccinate the entire flock at one time.

2. Do not open and mix the vaccine until ready to use.

3. Remove the tear-off aluminum seal from the vaccine vial.

4. Carefully pour cool, clean, non-chlorinated water into the vaccine vial until it is approximately two-thirds full.

5. Reset the stopper and shake the vial to thoroughly dissolve the vaccine.

6. Pour the vaccine into a bottle containing sufficient non-chlorinated water to vaccinate the required number of chickens.

7. Follow the directions of the spray cabinet manufacturer when mixing and administering vaccine.

Coarse Spray Method Administration

FOR CHICKENS 1 DAY OF AGE OR OLDER:

The vaccine dilution is prepared by mixing 1,000 doses of vaccine with 70 mL of non-chlorinated water. The vaccine is then added to the pressure tank reservoir of the spray apparatus. Each 100 chicks should receive 7 mL of vaccine solution. Full directions for use of the Spray Cabinet are available from the company.

Poulvac Bron GA98 Caution

The capacity of this vaccine to produce satisfactory results depends on many factors, including but not limited to conditions of storage and handling by the user, administration of the vaccine, health and responsiveness of individual animals and degree of field exposure. Therefore, directions for use should be followed carefully. The use of this vaccine is subject to applicable state and federal laws and regulations.
