Newcastle Disease-Fowl Pox Vaccine, Live Fowl Pox Vector

U.S. Vet. Lic. No.: 368


VECTORMUNE® FP-N is a genetically engineered, live virus vaccine for the vaccination of chickens as an aid in the prevention of Newcastle disease and fowl pox. The fowl pox vector used in this vaccine has been genetically modified to contain and express genes for the key protective Newcastle disease virus (NDV) antigens, as well as the full complement of protective fowl pox virus (FPV) antigens.

Contains gentamicin and amphotericin B as preservatives.

Vectormune FP-N Indications

For the vaccination of healthy chickens as an aid in the prevention of Newcastle disease and fowl pox. The vaccine may be used subcutaneously in NDV maternal antibody negative chickens at one day of age or older or by wing web in FPV susceptible chickens at nine weeks of age or older. NDV susceptible or primed chickens may be vaccinated by the wing web route. Chickens receiving this vaccine must not have been previously vaccinated with a fowl pox product.

Dosage and Administration

Subcutaneous: Aseptically transfer 5 to 10 mL of sterile diluent from the 100 mL diluent bottle to the vaccine vial and mix until the lyophilized material is rehydrated. Transfer the rehydrated vaccine back to the diluent bottle and mix. Administer 0.2 mL per bird subcutaneously in the loose skin on the back of the neck, just below the head.

Wing Web: Aseptically transfer the entire 5 mL of sterile diluent to the vaccine vial and mix until the lyophilized material is rehydrated. Administer one dose per bird using a two-pronged wing web applicator designed to deliver 0.01 mL per bird. Stab the underside of the webbed portion of the wing, avoiding blood vessels, bones, wing muscles and feathered areas.

Precaution(s): Store vaccine at 35-45°F (2-7°C).

Use entire contents immediately after rehydrating. Burn containers and all unused contents.
