FURTHER INFORMATION
Vaccination is recommended for fish at or above 35 grams. The water temperature at vaccination should be at or below 15°C. Fish should be withheld from feed for 1-2 days before vaccination. Fish should be anaesthetised according to veterinary recommendations. Start feeding, at the earliest, 12 hours after vaccination. Only healthy fish should be vaccinated. Do not use in breeding stock. No information is available on the safety and efficacy from the concurrent use of this vaccine with any other. It is therefore recommended that no other vaccines should be administered within 14 days before or after vaccination with this product. Shake well before use. Sterile injection equipment should be used. At least 500 degree days are recommended from vaccination to potential exposure to furunculosis, vibriosis, coldwater vibriosis and wound disease.

UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS
When undesirable effects occur, they are normally seen in the abdominal cavity. Vaccinated animals normally show very slight to moderate adhesions between viscera or between viscera and the abdominal wall. The eventual adhesions may be removed manually and are thus not severe. Occasionally, vaccinated populations may show adhesions between greater parts of the abdominal organs, granulomas and/or more massive pigmentation. Such lesions are typically seen in < 10% of the treated animals.
