CONTRAINDICATIONS, cautions and adverse reactions

Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. The hens will not be treated with antibiotics 7 days before and 14 days after vaccination. Do not vaccinate hens in lay period. Di-Gal vaccine does not cause side effects. Following smallpox vaccination it will appear, to 7 – 10 days, specific local reactions in the form of smallpox nodules delimited or confluent, with variable size, depending on the responsiveness and age vaccinated birds.

Vaccination devices must be checked both before vaccination and during the operation of vaccination to inoculate the correct dose of 0.01 ml / bird. The reconstituted vaccine should be used within 2 hours and will be protected from light and heat.

Verification is done by controlling the effectiveness of the vaccine’s local reactions (check the presence of smallpox nodules at the specific inoculation site) from 7 to 10 days after vaccination at least in 10% of vaccinated birds. If there is no following vaccination nodules at injection sites specific to more than 20% of the flock, re-vaccination is recommended in the other wing of the hen. A good immune response is the result of antigenic components of a strong and competent immune system of the body. The vaccine is administrasted only  in clinically healthy birds. It is recommended that birds from the same  shelter to be vaccinated the same day.
