CHOLERAMUNE® M - For the active immunization of chickens against Pasteurella multocida from CEVA SANTE ANIMALE

CHOLERAMUNE® M is a live bacterial vaccine containing the known avirulent isolate of M-9 strain of Pasteurella in a freeze-dried preparation. The M-9 strain has been shown to offer protection against naturally-occurring field strains of Pasteurella multocida without causing untoward reactions in vaccinates or reverting to virulence in the flock. The seed culture used to make this vaccine has been laboratory tested as required by USDA for protection against challenge with Pasteurella multocida type 1.

CHOLERAMUNE® M is recommended for use in healthy chickens 6 weeks of age or older as an aid in preventing Fowl Cholera due to Pasteurella multocida type 1.

Best results are obtained when vaccine is administered initially to chickens 6-12 weeks of age and again four to six weeks later, prior to start of lay.
Wing Web: Insert the applicator into the webbed portion of the wing avoiding feathers, muscle, bone and blood vessels (0.01 ml dose/bird). Vaccine should be used within one hour.

10 x 1,000 dose vials of vaccine with 10 vials of diluent (10 ml each) and vaccine applicators / box

Initial vaccination should not be conducted in chickens older than 12 weeks of age, as this may result in larger granulomas at the site of inoculation which may cause carcass downgrading at slaughter
