WARNINGS

  • Withdrawal period: Do not slaughter animals for human consumption within 7 days of vaccination.
  • Usually no marked reaction follows vaccination although a transient swelling may appear at the site of inoculation, and some animals may show a moderate rise in temperature for 1 or 2 days.
  • Dispose of any unused vaccine as well as all empty vaccine containers and vaccination equipment at the end of each day’s operation according to local waste disposal regulations.
  • 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.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE - USE ONLY AS DIRECTED

  • Shake bottle well before use and repeat from time to time during the vaccination process.
  • If possible use a separate, sharp, sterile needle for each animal.
  • Administer the vaccine subcutaneously on the side of the neck midway between the shoulder and the head.
  • Sheep not previously vaccinated should be given 2 injections of vaccine, with an interval of 4 to 6 weeks.
  • Lambs can be immunized from 3 months of age. Administer a second dose 4 to 6 weeks later.
  • An annual booster injection should be given to the whole flock 2 to 6 weeks before the ewes are due to lamb.
  • Lambs born from ewes vaccinated before lambing are protected for 12 to 16 weeks by the antibodies passed in the colostrum.
  • It is sound practice to reinoculate vaccinated sheep shortly before the period of greatest risk.

Note: Lambs younger than 2 months and animals in poor condition, infested with parasites or suffering from other diseases will not immunise well.
