ADMINISTRATION: Allow the vaccine to reach ambient temperature, 16° to 27°C (60° to 80°F), shake well before use and periodically during use. Inject 0.5 ml subcutaneously in chickens in the back of the neck midway between the head and body in a direction away from the head using an 18-gauge needle. Do not inject into muscle tissue or neck vertebrae. Vaccinate healthy chickens at least 10 weeks of age. A second vaccination is recommended a minimum of 6 weeks following initial vaccination.
The use of any inactivated vaccine may cause false positive results on Mycoplasma plate tests. Avoid Mycoplasma testing prior to ten weeks post-vaccination. The use of S. enteritidis vaccines may interfere with avian pullorum-typhoid testing. It is recommended that vaccination occur after testing is complete.
