Marek's Vaccine 1000 doses

Product No. MAREK-VAC

Availability: In Stock

Mareks vaccine is recommended for the vaccination of healthy one-day-old chicks only, to aid in the prevention of the signs and lesions of Mareks disease. Give subcutaneously only (injected into the bird). For vaccination, an automatic syringe with 22- to 20-gauge needles, 3/8-inch to 1/2-inch in length, is recommended. Make certain that all equipment is sterilized and change needles frequently. Inject each chick subcutaneously with 0.2 mL (two-tenths of a milliliter) of the vaccine. Inject into the back of the chicks neck by pinching the skin.

Smaller would be better  |  By Kathy Rowe
We need this vaccine to protect our smaller flock, so having to get it in a 1000 dose bottle was kind of crazy. Perhaps the mfg would make 100 dose bottles for backyard flocks. That would be much more cost effective. I hope this will give our chicks protection. Last year I lost several very nice show birds to Marek's and that was not a cheap loss! So this year, we'll be vaccinating and hoping for the best.
Response From Stromberg's: Hello Kathy, I agree smaller would be better. Unfortunately the manufacturers of these vaccines have to scale them up to 1000 doses so that they can still make money on them. This for them is even a small amount. Recently we had to quit selling New Castle Vaccines because we could only get 10,000 dose vials. Which does not help the small farm holder. So while we do try to get the ear of our manufacturer to make smaller batches we have not had much luck. We will still continue to try but right now we can only get the 1000 dose size. Thank you for your order and I hope this information helps you and other customers understand why we sell 1000 dose vials. Enjoy your birds! Eric Stromberg
