NOBILIS® SG 9R is a live freeze-dried vaccine based on the Salmonella gallinarum strain 9R. The freeze-dried pellet contains a stabiliser. Each 0,2 ml dose contains at least 2 x 107 CFU of F strain 9R.


  • Do not freeze.
  • Initial vaccination should be carried out at 6 weeks of age.
  • The use of antibiotics or other substances with a systemic action should be avoided from 7 days before vaccination to 14 days after vaccination.
  • It is advisable to vaccinate all the susceptible fowls on the farm at the same time. If this is not feasible, strict separation of the vaccinated and the unvaccinated fowls should be done to prevent the spread of the vaccine organisms to the unvaccinated fowls.
  • Rough pathogenic field strains, where isolated, can interfere with diagnostic tools for differentiation of S. gallinarum field strains from the vaccine strain.
  • The vaccine strain may be isolated for a prolonged period of time from post mortem material depending on the health status of the fowls.
  • For optimal development of immunity it is recommended not to introduce fowls in an infected environment until 14 days after primary vaccination.
  • Destroy any unused, reconstituted vaccine, empty vaccine containers, needles etc. for instance by burning after the completion of the vaccination.
  • Wash and disinfect hands and equipment after vaccinating.
  • Do not open and reconstitute the vaccine until ready to start vaccination.
  • Use the vaccine immediately after reconstitution.
  • Each vial must be used within 2 hours after reconstitution.
  • Do not store partially used containers for future use.
  • Use according to the number of doses as indicated on the label.
  • Accidental injection of a by-stander or self-vaccination may lead to severe local reaction. Consult a physician.
  • 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.


  • Only healthy fowls should be vaccinated.
  • Observe aseptic precautions. Ensure that all vaccination equipment (needles, syringes, etc.) are clean and sterile prior to use.
  • The vaccination equipment should be free from traces of disinfectant and spirit.
  • Ensure that all equipment is kept clean and sterile during use.
