Egg Drop Syndrome Vaccine, Inactivated, Adenovirus 76 strain

For Breeder Hens and Commercial Layers

This vaccine has been developed for use in breeder hens and commercial layers to protect against Egg Drop Syndrome. A single vaccination given at least 4 weeks prior to the onset of egg production, produces high levels of immunity to protect the flock throughout the laying period, especially in areas having incidence of EDS outbreaks.

Is produced with a high concentration of EDS 76 virus, suspended in a stable oil emulsion. A large amount of antigen is provided in a 1/2 ml dose. When injected, the oil emulsion controls the absorption of the virus 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 viral vaccines of B.P. (Vet).

Each dose contains not less than 2000 hemagglutinating units of inactivated adenovirus.

It is completely safe because it contains no living organism. It can safely be administered to chickens 12 weeks of age or older. It cannot spread from vaccinated to susceptible flocks. The immunity produced is of long duration.
