Tetanus Toxoid Indications
For intramuscularly vaccination of healthy horses as an aid in the prevention of tetanus.
Dosage and AdministrationInject one 1 mL dose intramuscularly using aseptic technique. Administer a second 1 mL dose 4 to 8 weeks after the first dose. Revaccinate annually using one 1 mL dose. For smaller horses, administer one 0.5 mL dose according to the above schedule for horses.
Protective tetanus antibody titers usually occur two weeks after the second injection of the initial series. In the event of injury during the course of the initial vaccination program, or if the annual boosters have not been given, a prophylactic dose of at least 1500 units of tetanus antitoxin should be given.
The MetaStim® adjuvant is added to enhance the immune response and to promote the proper rate of vaccine absorption following inoculation.
