Live concentrated vaccine against anthrax
Bacillus anthracis spores, 1190 R strain with minimum titer of 3 x 107 and maximum titer of 7 x 107 /ml.
Cattle, sheep, goats, swine, equine
It is intended for the active immunization against cattle, sheep, goats, swine, equine anthrax, both for prevention and necessity. Carry out the preventive vaccination in spring before grazing and also during other periods of time if the animals have not been vaccinated. Carry out the necessity vaccination in infected environment in clinically healthy animals after removing the febrile ones from the livestock. The immunity takes place 14-21 days after inoculation and lasts12 months.
Do not use anti-anthrax vaccination in:
- Young cattle, sheep, goats, swine under the age of 2 months and equines under the age of 6 months
- febrile, weak, poorly kept animals
- animals in the last pregnancy month and during the first 3 weeks after birth
- sheep, 5 days before and after shearing or antiparasitic bath.
Do not administer Carboromvac at the same time with immunological products. Do not vaccinate at least 14 days before and after vaccination with Carboromvac.
The vaccine does not cause postvaccinal reactions. The vaccinate animals may develop lump at the inoculation site and a 1-2 °C body temperature increase as normal reaction to the vaccine. Usually, these reactions subside within 2-3 days after inoculation. Sometimes, in lactating animals (cattle, sheep), the milk production has a 2-5% decrease for 2-3 days and then comes back to normal. A small number (1-2%) of the vaccinated animals, especially those with nutritive-metabolic deficiency (affected) may develop anaphylactic reactions, for which it is recommended to observe the livestock 1-3 hours after vaccination and give antihistaminic medication. If obvious postvaccinal reactions occur with fever and edema at the inoculation site, keep animals under observation and apply cold compresses on the edematous area.
DOSAGE FOR EACH SPECIES, ROUTE(S) AND METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION
Inoculate the vaccine by subcutaneous route as follows:
|Species and minimum age for vaccination||Minimum no. of spores/dose||Amount in ml|
|Over 2-month old cattle||15 x 106||0,5|
|Over 2-month old sheep and swine|
Over 6-month old equines
|6 x 106||0,2|

Inoculate the vaccine in cattle and equines in the middle triangle of the neck after disinfection and haircut of the inoculation site. Inoculate the vaccine in sheep, goats and swine by subcutaneous route, on the inner side of the thigh.
ADVICE ON CORRECT ADMINISTRATION
Take the vaccine vials out of the refrigerator 2-3 hours before vaccination so that the product reaches the temperature of 15–25 °C.
