VECTORMUNE® FP MG is a genetically engineered live virus vaccine for the vaccination of chickens as an aid in the prevention of fowl pox and Mycoplasma gallisepticum. The fowl pox vaccine has been genetically engineered to contain and express key protective Mycoplasma gallisepticum bacterial antigens.

INDICATIONS

Administer by wing web to healthy, susceptible chickens at least eight weeks of age but at least four weeks prior to the start of egg production. Turkeys can be vaccinated from 4 weeks onwards. Chickens or Turkeys receiving this vaccine must not have been previously vaccinated with a fowl pox vaccine.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Remove seal and stopper from vaccine vial and diluent vial. Pour entire contents of diluent vial into vaccine vial, insert stopper, and shake well. The vaccine is ready for use and should be used within one hour. Hold each individual bird and spread the wing with the underside facing up. Dip the two-pronged wing web applicator into the vaccine so that the grooves fill with liquid and deliver 0.01 mL per bird. Insert the double-pronged applicator into the web portion of the wing avoiding blood vessels, muscle, and bone. Seven to 10 days after vaccination, observe several chickens for evidence of “takes” that include swelling and/or scab formation at the site of injection.
