The poultry industry has evolved significantly in recent decades. The increasing demand for higher volumes, better quality and competitive prices have resulted in the industrialization, intensification and concentration of production. The latter has led to increasing pressure on animals that have better genetic, productive and efficiency potential.
In this context, the control of infectious diseases is key. Additionally, the pressure to reduce the use of antibiotics has increased, as the demands on the effective control of zoonotic agents, which has forced producers to improve and deeply understand disease control. Biosecurity and vaccination are essential tools for the proper control of infectious diseases. Additionally, the concepts of vaccination have undergone such a revolution that they have required the definition of new health strategies.
As the Gumboro virus is a very persistent virus and can easily survive in the environment, complete Gumboro control is only possible with an application of an efficacious and well applied Gumboro vaccine in broilers and layers. This should be implemented alongside a strong focus on cleaning and disinfection, and a solid breeder vaccination program to provide Maternally Derived Antibodies (MDA) in order to prevent early infection of the field Gumboro virus.
Active immunity (or vaccine immunity) induced by the administration of a vaccine will develop according to the vaccine(s) employed, the quality of the application, and the immune status of the chickens at the time of the vaccination.
- Store in the dark between 2 °C and 8 °C.
- Do not freeze.
- Avoid prolonged or repetitive exposure to high ambient temperatures, following withdrawal from the refrigerator prior to use.
- Protect from exposure to direct sunlight.
- Vaccinate healthy chickens only.
- It is advisable to vaccinate all the susceptible chickens on the farm at the same time.
- If this is not feasible, strict separation of vaccinated and unvaccinated chickens should be done to prevent the spread of the vaccine virus to the unvaccinated chickens.
- Do not mix Nobilis® Gumboro D78 with other vaccines.
- Use according to the number of doses as indicated on the label.
- Do not open and reconstitute the vaccine until ready to start vaccination.
- Use Nobilis® Gumboro D78 immediately after reconstitution.
- Do not store partially used vaccine vials for future use.
- Destroy any empty containers as well as unused, reconstituted vaccine and vaccination equipment according to local waste disposal regulations after completion of vaccination.
- 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.
- Ensure that the vaccination equipment (spray apparatus, droppers) is clean prior to use.
- The spray apparatus should be free from sediments, corrosion and traces of disinfectants. It should be used for vaccination purposes only.
- Avoid contamination with traces of disinfectants or spirits.
- If the drinking water or spray method is used for administration of the vaccine, ensure that there is no iron, chlorine or disinfectants in the water.
- Ensure that the vaccine medicated water is consumed within 1 to 2 hours.
- Each vial should be used immediately after opening.
- The reconstituted vaccine should be consumed within 1 to 2 hours (i.e. shelf life of
2 hours) at a temperature of 25 °C or lower.
- Wash and disinfect the hands and equipment after vaccination.
- It is good vaccination practice to avoid contact with the eyes, hands and clothing when handling the vaccine.
