Administer the vaccine early in the morning.

Methods of Vaccination
Remove seal from vial of vaccine.
Remove the stopper and half-fill vial with cool, sterile distilled water.
Replace stopper and shake, until vaccine is in solution
Pour rehydrated vaccine into a clean container of cool, sterile distilled water to dilute the vaccine as indicated for your specific coarse spray vaccination machine. For example, with a machine that dispenses 10 mL to a box of 100 chickens, use a total of 500 mL of cool, sterile distilled water per 5,000 doses of vaccine or 1 litre of cool, sterile distilled water per 10,000 doses of vaccine. Mix thoroughly.
Prime and adjust the machine as instructed in manual accompanying the specific machine. Activate spray head.
The vaccine is now ready for immediate use.
Keep the birds inside the boxes at least 30 minutes after spraying to assure preening effect.
Drinking Water Method
Whenever available clean water containing 2.5 grams of instant skim milk powder per litre should be used as a diluent for reconstitution.
The vaccine should be prepared immediately before use by tearing the cap off the vial, removing the rubber stopper and resuspending the bacteria with pre-chilled diluent. After shaking, the reconstituted vaccine is poured into the 3-5 litres of skim milk solution (2.5 grams of instant skim milk per litre of chilled water).
Vaccination delivery may be via drinking water lines or direct dispensing to drinkers.
