Dosage and administration
Administration is by intramuscular injection preferably in the neck.
Do not use chemicals, e.g. alcohol, for sterilisation.
The required dose is prepared by reconstituting the vaccine with the accompanying solvent.
Reconstitution of the 20-dose presentation
Reconstitute the vaccine immediately before use by transferring about 5 ml of diluent to the vaccine vial using a sterile needle and syringe. Agitate the vial to ensure that the lyophilisate is fully dissolved and syringe the entire contents into the diluent vial to mix with the remaining diluent.
Initially the whole herd should be vaccinated with a course of 2 vaccinations, 10-14 days apart. Subsequently, for closed herds only young calves require revaccination at around 2 weeks of age, followed by a second injection 10-14 days later. New animals introduced into the herd should receive a full vaccination course at the appropriate dosage. No subsequent doses are required.
Can be used during pregnancy.
