Correct Vaccination Site with GlanEry® 7in1 B12

Sheep vaccinations must be administered correctly to ensure the desired immune response is achieved to provide effective protection.

Before you start vaccinating, ensure you have the correct gear. All sheep vaccines should be given by a clean and accurate vaccinator. ALWAYS USE A 6mm (1/4 inch) 18G NEEDLE.

Inject GlanEry 7in1 B12 subcutaneously, under the skin, on the side of the neck to ensure all critical structures are avoided. This is approximately 50mm down from the ear down the neckline as shown in the diagram (see orange circle).

Correct vaccination


Needle length is important!

ALWAYS USE A 6mm (1/4 inch) NEEDLE

Studies have shown that sheep and lambs should only be vaccinated with a 6mm (1/4 inch) 18G needle. Longer needles, 12mm (1/2 inch) needles or longer will likely puncture the muscle on every vaccination and increase the risk of damage to the carcase.

The following table shows the recommended angles for efficient and effective vaccination for all classes of stock.

Class of Stock Needdle Gauge Needle Length Needle Angle To Skin
Lambs 18G 1/4 INCH 45°
Adults off-shears/short wool/low body condition score 18G 1/4 INCH 45°
Adults with wool growth 18G 1/4 INCH 90°

Ensure that your needles are clean and sharp before use – CHANGE your needles every 50 doses or if the needle becomes damaged, burred or bent.

A shrouded vaccinator is recommend as it improves the deposition of vaccine in the subcutaneous space under the skin. The shroud improves human safety as it removes the second hand from the injection site as it self-tents the skin when vaccinating at a 45 degree angle. The diagram below indicates the recommended needle bevel orientation.
