STORAGE
  • Store between 2 °C and 8 °C.
  • Do not freeze.
  • Protect from light.

WARNINGS
  • Since the immune response to the anthrax component depends on multiplication of the living organisms after injection, the administration of antibacterial drugs should be avoided wherever possible from shortly before and until 2 weeks after vaccination.
  • The inoculation of animals late in pregnancy should be avoided unless there is a serious risk of disease.
  • As with all vaccines occasional hypersensitivity reactions may occur. In such cases consult a veterinarian.
  • Usually no marked reaction follows vaccination although a transient swelling may appear at the site of inoculation and an animal may show a rise of temperature for 1 or 2 days.
  • Partially used containers should be disposed of at the end of each day's operation in accordance with local waste disposal regulations, as under field conditions it may be difficult to avoid accidental contamination of the vaccine.
  • KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN, UNINFORMED PERSONS AND ANIMALS.
  • Although this vaccine has been extensively tested under a large variety of conditions, failure thereof may ensue as a result of a wide range of reasons. If this is suspected, seek veterinary advice and notify the registration holder.
