Live, lyophilized vaccine against avian smallpox prepared with MP1 fowl strain

Chickens, pheasants, turkeys
It is used for smallpox vaccination of minimum 90-day old fowls. If necessary, the minimum age for vaccination in infected flocks can be 60 days. The immunity provided by AVIPOX GAL is fulfilled 21 days after vaccination and lasts throughout the economic life time of fowls. In chickens, vaccinate with AVIPOX GAL as booster 30 days after vaccination with AVIPOX COL-81. Administer the vaccine carefully, with the following precautions:
– in farms in which smallpox evolved in previous years or when new unvaccinated fowls are introduced in the vaccinated flocks.
– In individual households, during April-September, at least 4 weeks before laying period.
– In a focus of disease, vaccinate only the healthy fowls, slaughter the very sick ones and treat locally and generally the slightly sick ones.
Do not vaccinate fowls with records of smallpox diphtheria, from dragged or deprived flocks and especially those with respiratory disorders and fowls under the age of 60 days. Do not administer chloramphenicol or other broad spectrum antibiotics 2 days before and 14 days after vaccination. Do not vaccinate fowls from individual households during cold and rainy seasons.
AVIPOX GAL vaccine does not cause postvaccinal reactions. Yet, these can still occur in a small number of fowls and the symptoms are apathy and loss of appetite for a short period of time (2-3 days). 7-10 days after vaccination, solid 2-5 mm diameter smallpox lumps must develop at the inoculation site, depending on the receptivity and age of fowls. The local postavccinal reactions control is mandatory in all small flocks and in 10–20% of the large flocks. If lumps are absent in more than 30% of the controlled flock, revaccinate in the other wing according to the same procedure. The postvaccinal reactions may be absent in previously vaccinated fowls or those with smallpox record, if the vaccine has been inactivated (by preservation/ inappropriate handling) or the vaccination procedure is wrong.
DOSAGE FOR EACH SPECIES, ROUTE(S) AND METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION
The vaccine dose is 0.01 ml. Reconstitute the lyophilized vaccine in the diluter appropriate to the number of doses inscribed on the label according to the following table:
Number of doses/vial 50 100 200 500 1.000 2.000 3.000
Amount of diluter (ml) 0.5 1 2 5 10 20 30
In chickens and pheasants, administer the vaccine by transdermal route, after plucking, by stick method (wing perforation in the humeroradiocubital angle) with the vaccine device, provided with two needles with holes ensuring a single dose inoculation (0.01 ml). In turkeys do not administer AVIPOX GAL by wing membrane perforation, but by lubricating the plucked skin from the thigh or leg, since the turkeys, by sleeping with the head under the wing, might pass the virus from the inoculation site to the wattle causing the local smallpox process.
ADVICE ON CORRECT ADMINISTRATION
Shake vigorously the vaccine vial after adding the diluter and wipe the vaccine device (stick) with clean gauze after vaccinating each fowl. Replace as often as possible the vaccine device with an unused sterile one. Do not administer another immunological product 14 days after vaccination with AVIPOXGAL.
Meat, eggs = 0 days;
Vials with 100, 250, 500, 1000, lyophilized vaccine doses together with the diluter appropriate to the number of doses ( 1, 2, 5, 10ml).
