VECTORVAC HVT-IBDV® is indicated for the vaccination of healthy poultry from meat, posture and breeding chickens, as an aid in the prevention of Marek’s disease (MD) and Bursa Infectious disease (IBD, Gumboro disease). Before being administered, the vaccine vial should be quickly removed from the liquid nitrogen tank and thawed by gentle shaking in warm water between 26ºC and 29ºC for 1 minute, until the vial with the contents completely thawed is observed. Defrost one ampoule at a time. Once the vial is open, slowly extract its contents in a sterile 10 ml syringe and combine with 400 ml of diluent for subcutaneous administration or 2 ampoules for 800 ml of diluent. Maximum dilution time of the content is 30 seconds. Do not over-dose or over-dilute the vaccine. Use the vaccine immediately, within a period not exceeding 45 minutes. Homogenize the vaccine every 10 minutes with gentle movements so that the suspension of the vaccine is mixed during the vaccination session and ensure that the correct vaccine titre is administered.
