INDICATIONS: For use in healthy cattle, sheep, goats, swine and horses as an aid in the prevention of anthrax. A suspension of viable Bacillus anthracis Sterne Strain 34F2 spores in saponin.  

DIRECTIONS: Store at 2 to 7 C. Do not freeze. Shake well before use. Use entire contents when first opened. Do not vaccinate within 42 days before slaughter.  

In areas where anthrax is known to be a problem, it is advisable to revaccinate annually approximately 4 weeks prior to the time the disease usually appears. 

For control of outbreaks, vaccination of all animals not showing symptoms is recommended. Not all animals will be protected by this procedure but taking action as suggested may stop further spread of the disease. It is also recommended that animals showing symptoms be isolated and treated with antibiotics as permitted. 

Animals being vaccinated or recently vaccinated should not receive antibiotics, as antibiotics will interfere with effective vaccination. 

Do not use disinfectants to sterilize equipment.  

PRECAUTIONS: In the event of accidental human exposure, consult a physician. Adverse reactions have been reported in young and miniature horses.  Consult your veterinarian when considering vaccination of exotic or sensitive species and immunologically immature or stressed animals. Burn, autoclave or chemically disinfect container and all unused contents. Anaphylactoid reaction may occur following administration of products of this nature. If noted, administer adrenalin or equivalent.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Inject 1 ml subcutaneously into each animal. Revaccinate in 2-3 weeks in heavily contaminated areas. Light to moderate swelling may appear at the injection site. This will disappear after several days.
