INACTIVATED CORYZA

Infectious Coryza Disease Vaccine, Inactivated, Serotype A & C

For Chickens

Indications
This vaccine has been developed for use in chickens. A dose of bacterin contains a large amount of inactivated Haemophilus paragallinarum. Two inoculations, given in the late growing period, produce high levels of immunity to protect the flock, especially in areas having a high risk of infectious coryza outbreaks.

Description
It is produced with high concentrations of the Serotype A strain 221 and Serotype C antigens of Haemophilus paragallinarum. These are the serotypes that most commonly infect chicken flocks. High concentrations of these strains are suspended in a stable oil emulsion. When injected, the oil emulsion controls the absorption of the antigen and greatly enhances the development of high levels of immunity. The product meets rigid 'Quality Control' standards of Purity, Safety and Potency as per individual monographs of bacterial vaccines of B.P. (Vet).

Composition
Each dose contains not less than a pre-inactivation titer of 1 x 108 CFU Haemophilus paragallinarum bacterin serotype A & serotype C.

Advantages
It is completely safe because it contains no living bacteria. It can be safely administered to chickens 6 weeks of age or older. It can be used to check the spread of infection in flocks where Infectious Coryza has been diagnosed. It cannot spread from vaccinated to susceptible flocks. The immunity produced is of long duration.

Vaccination Recommendation

Caution
The capability of this vaccine to produce satisfactory results depends upon many factors, including - but not limited to - conditions of storage and handling by the user, administration of the vaccine, health and responsiveness of individual chickens, and degree of field exposure.
