    Vaccine Preparation:

    1. Do not open and mix the vaccine until ready for use.
    2. Mix only 1 vial at a time and use the entire contents within one hour.
    3. Remove the tear-off aluminum seal from the vaccine vial without disturbing the rubber stopper.
    4. Use cool, clean, non-chlorinated drinking water to which evaporated milk has been added at a rate of 1 ounce per quart (30 mL per liter).
    5. Hold the vial submerged in water, lift the lip of the rubber stopper so that the water is sucked into the vial.
    6. Reseat the stopper and shake to thoroughly dissolve the vaccine. The vaccine is now ready for use.

    Spray Administration:

    1. Proper spray application of the vaccine is accomplished only through the use of a clean sprayer emitting a coarse spray.
    2. Use the spray method only in houses that can be closed during vaccination and for at least 15 minutes thereafter. Cross winds, drafts or ventilation fans may prevent effective application.
    3. After rehydrating the vaccine, further dilute each 1,000 doses to 100 mL using the water with milk.
    4. Place the vaccine in a sprayer container. Spray droplets of 40 – 50 microns (coarse) average size are desirable.
    5. Apply vaccine over all birds at the rate of 1 dose per square foot or 1 dose per bird, whichever is greater.

    • Mycoplasma gallisepticum F strain is known to produce clinical disease in turkeys.
    • DO NOT ALLOW TURKEYS TO COME IN CONTACT WITH VACCINE OR VACCINATED CHICKENS.
