Vacci-Guard stabilizes or neutralizes the chlorine in water during vaccination of poultry. Water chlorination is done on many farms to kill bacteria in the water. Chlorine is a bacteriocidal agent and is the active ingredient in many cleaning products and sanitizers. Chlorine also has a detrimental effect on live, modified live bacterial and viral vaccines.
Vacci-Guard is put through the water lines to help neutralize the negative effect of chlorination on bacterial and viral vaccines before, during and after the vaccination process. Vacci-Guard also contains a coloring agent so it can be seen when it goes through the water lines. The dye can be observed on the beaks, tongues and feathers of birds that have consumed it, making it an excellent tool of evaluating the number of birds that have consumed the vaccine solution.
