Glycerine suspension of avirulent Bacillus anthracis 34F2 spores for the immunisation of cattle, horses, mules, donkeys, sheep, goats, pigs and camels against anthrax
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
All animals should be inoculated annually.
Working animals should be rested for a week to 10 days after inoculation.
Until the swelling has subsided, these animals should not be driven over long distances.
Do not slaughter animals for human consumption within 14 days of vaccination.
Vaccinate healthy animals only. Keep out of reach of children, uninformed persons and animals.
Goats must be injected in the inner thigh or tailfold as these animals are inclined to show allergic reactions with swellings at the site of injection, which may cause suffocation if the inoculation is given in the neck.
Despite all possible precautionary measures, the absolute safety of this vaccine can unfortunately not be guaranteed in all animals.
Occasionally animals, on certain farms, may show shock reactions shortly after injection with the vaccine.
Users of the vaccine are, therefore, advised to first inject a number of young animals and observe them for 30-60 minutes.
Should they show no adverse reactions, the rest of the herd may be immunised.
Although this product has been extensively tested under a large variety of conditions, failure thereof may ensue as a result of a wide range of reasons.
If this is suspected, seek veterinary advice and notify the registration holder.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE Use only as directed.
Sterilise syringes and needles by boiling in water for at least 15 minutes.
Do not use disinfectants or methylated spirits for sterilising either syringes or needles.
Use a separate needle for each animal. Shake the bottle well before use.
Avoid exposure to high temperatures and direct sunlight during inoculation.
DOSAGE: 1 ml subcutaneously for all animals irrespective of species, breed or age.
EFFECTS OF THE VACCINE The vaccine causes a swelling at the site of injection.
The swelling is temporary and subsides after a few days.
Immunity develops within 2-4 weeks after vaccination and persists for approximately 9-12 months but cannot be guaranteed in all animals.
Store the vaccine at a temperature of 4 ˚C to 8 ˚C, in a refrigerator. Do not use after the expiry date printed on the bottle.
