Administration via Drinking Water
- Prior to giving treated drinking water, the chickens should be fasted from water for 2 – 3 hours (the duration depends on the weather condition). During hot weather, the chickens should be fasted for one hour at most.
- Drinkers should be sufficient for all of the chickens to drink at the same time. Do not use drinkers that are made from cans.

- water, add 20 – 30 grams of Medimilk (skim milk) to every 10 liters of drinking water 30 minutes before the vaccine is dissolve. Medimilk helps to preserve the efficacy of the vaccine during administration.
- Sufficient amount of drinking water required for vaccination that is likely to be consumed completely within 2 hours, should be prepared. Fill half of the vaccine vial with drinking water then close the vial back and shake well before mixing the vial content with the rest of the drinking water.
- To ensure that all chickens get the right dosage, half of the treated water is given 30 minutes prior to the second half.
- The treated drinking water should be placed in shaded places away from direct sunlight. VACCINATION PROGRAM The program may be used as a general guide. It may be modified to suit certain conditions.
