Vaccination

Certain diseases are too widespread or difficult to eradicate and require a routine vaccination program. In general, all flocks should be vaccinated against Marek's Disease, Newcastle Disease, Infectious Bronchitis, Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD; Gumboro), and Avian Encephalomyelitis (AE). The exact vaccination schedule depends upon many things such as disease exposures expected, maternal immunities, vaccine types available, and routes of administration preferred. Therefore, no one program can be recommended for all locations and situations. Consult with local veterinarians to determine the best vaccination program for your area. Following is a basic program where breeders received an inactivated Newcastle-Bronchitis-IBD vaccine.

1 Vaccination for other diseases may be required depending on local disease challenges.
2Only one AE vaccination is required, either at 10 or 13 weeks. AE can be given in the water, or by wing web in combination with pox.
