Do not use in fish intended for broodstock.
An immunisation period of at least 600 degree-days from vaccination to transfer to seawater is recommended.
Do not administer this product to fish which have already received this vaccine. Fish with clinical signs of disease must not be vaccinated. Do not vaccinate at water temperatures below 1°C and above 18°C. Temperatures close to 18°C are suboptimal for Atlantic salmon; thus vaccination should preferably be performed at water temperatures of 15°C or below. Avoid vaccination during smoltification. The severity of the undesirable effects is among other things, dependent on hygiene, vaccination technique, size of the fish at vaccination and water temperature during vaccination.
Occasional mortality may occur if individuals fail to respond or the immune system is suppressed by concurrent infections, poor nutritional status, genetic factors, smoltification or other stressful environmental conditions.
No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product. A decision to use this vaccine before or after other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be decided on a case by case basis.
Do not mix with any other veterinary medicinal product.
Adverse reactions in the form of visceral adhesions and pigmentation may occur. Adhesions between the abdominal wall and the viscera in addition to pigmentation on the viscera and abdominal wall are normally seen. Vaccinated fish show some growth retardation compared to non-vaccinated fish.
Following injection of an overdose, there is an increased risk of development of more severe lesions in the abdominal cavity, characterised by more severe pigmentation and adhesions between the abdominal wall and viscera.
Ensure that the method of restraint, handling and administration e.g. by the use of guarded needles (such as a protective device attached to the syringe providing a shield against the tip of the needle), minimises the risk of accidental self-injection.
To the user: This product contains mineral oil. Accidental injection/self injection may result in severe pain and swelling, particularly if injected into a joint or finger, and in rare cases could result in the loss of the affected finger if prompt medical attention is not given.
If you are accidentally injected with this product, seek prompt medical advice, even if only a very small amount is injected and take the package leaflet with you. If pain persists for more than 12 hours after medical examination, seek medical advice again.
To the physician: This veterinary medicinal product contains mineral oil. Even if small amounts have been injected, accidental injection with this product can cause intense swelling which may, for example, result in ischaemic necrosis and even the loss of a digit. Expert, PROMPT, surgical attention is required and may necessitate early incision and irrigation of the injected area, especially where there is involvement of finger pulp or tendon.
Repeated self-injections may aggravate the effects or cause anaphylactic shock.
