DIRECTIONS FOR USE - USE ONLY AS DIRECTED

  • Use sterile needles and syringes and aseptic procedures.

  • For the 100 mℓ pack size - Draw up 2 to 3 mℓ of the (Pasteurella) haemolytica leukotoxin component from the 100 mℓ plastic vial and inject into the 7 mℓ glass vial containing the modified, live viruses. Aspirate contents and transfer back into the 100 mℓ vial. Mix gently to distribute the viruses evenly in the liquid.
  • For the 10 mℓ pack size - Draw up 2 to 3 mℓ of the (Pasteurella) haemolytica leukotoxin component from the 10 mℓ plastic vial and inject into the 7 mℓ glass vial containing the modified live viruses.

  • Note: the contents of the 7 mℓ glass vials for the 10 mℓ, and 100 mℓ pack sizes are not interchangeable.
  • Ensure that the vaccine is kept cool. Protect vaccine from direct sunlight while administering.
