The vaccine dosage form is an emulsion for injections. The vaccine is a homogeneous emulsion of white or white-pink colour. Slight emulsion creaming at the top of the bottle during its storage is admissible. The emulsion becomes homogeneous again after thorough shaking.

Route of administration

The vaccine is administered intramuscularly in the middle third of the neck. The site of injection is treated with 70% ethanol or other disinfecting solution. The vaccine should be warmed in a water bath up to 30 – 35 °C for 10-15 minutes before admin istration. The vaccine bottles should be regularly shaken during the vaccination procedure. The volume of the vaccine dose is 1 cm3. Disposable or reusable syringes and needles as well as autoinjectors sterilized by boiling in water for 15-20 min should be used for the vaccination. Sterilization of syringes, needles and automated injectors with chemicals is prohibited. On infected farms all cattle should be vaccinated twice with a 21-30 day interval. Revaccination shall be performed by single vaccine administration 6 months after.

On farms at risk 3-10-day-old calves should be vaccinated twice with a 21-30-day interval. Revaccination should be carried out by single vaccine administration 6 months after the first vaccination and then annually. Heifers and cows should be vaccinated twice with a 21-30 day interval 1.5-2.0 months prior to calving; heifers ready for breeding should be vaccinated twice with a 21-30 day interval 1.0-1.5 month prior to the first service and then revaccinated 6 months after.

Immunity
