Features of Zoetis Poultry Vaccines
Poulvac Maternavac 4, an inactivated vaccine from Zoetis that helps protect chickens against four important diseases, has been licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and will begin shipping this fall, the company announced.
The new vaccine is built on the success of Poulvac Maternavac IBD-Reo, a vaccine that protects against standard and variant strains of infectious bursal disease (IBD), as well as malabsorption caused by reovirus. Poulvac Maternavac 4 offers these same protections, in addition to Newcastle disease (ND) and infectious bronchitis virus (IBV). See complete indications below.
The vaccine helps to build a strong base of immunity against four diseases in breeder hens and three diseases in broiler offspring,” said Kalen Cookson, DVM, director of clinical research, Zoetis. “That’s particularly important today because raising robust broilers has become more challenging with the surge in ‘no antibiotics ever’ production,” he added. “It stands to reason that chicks with a solid immune base are more likely to perform well during grow-out, regardless of the production system.” As an added benefit, using the four-way vaccine helps to reduce labor and bird stress by eliminating at least one injection, he explained.
Poulvac Maternavac 4 has been shown to be effective for vaccination of healthy, primed chickens against standard and variant IBD, ND, IBV, as well as tenosynovitis and malabsorption due to reovirus. The vaccine has also been shown to protect progeny against these same diseases except IBV.
The four-way vaccine should be administered to primed birds at 0.5 mL at 16 to 22 weeks of age (approximately 4 weeks prior to lay). There is a withholding period of 42 days before processing.
- Vaccinate only healthy chickens. Although disease may not be evident, coccidiosis, Mycoplasma infection, infectious bursal disease, Marek’s disease, reovirus infection and other disease conditions may cause complications or reduce immunity.
- Efforts should be taken to reduce stress conditions at the time of vaccination and during the reaction period.
- Do not spill or splash the vaccine.
- Use entire contents of vial when first opened.
- Burn vaccine containers and all unused contents.
- The use of this vaccine is subject to state laws, wherever applicable.
- This product should be stored, transported and administered in accordance with instructions and directions.
