Target Species


The importance of vaccination against LPAI and NDV infections

Low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) is a contagious, multi-organ systemic disease of poultry leading to high morbidity in poultry.1 The disease is caused by some H9 subtypes of type A influenza virus, family Orthomyxoviridae. 1 After mutation these LPAI viruses can become HPAI viruses, usually while they are circulating in poultry flocks.2

The Newcastle Disease Virus (NDV) genotypes I and II primarily represent vaccine strains, while the more virulent NDVs are clustered within genotypes III to X. Since the 1990s, genotype VIII expanded across Asia, South Africa, and parts of Europe; while genotype VII has been frequently reported in Europe, China, the Middle East, and South Africa.3,4,5,6

Vaccination is the primary control measure used to minimize losses.7

Vaccination Program

Birds can be vaccinated from the first day of age onwards, as per advice from your poultry veterinarian.


  • Onset of immunity: 3 weeks after the first vaccination.
  • Duration of immunity: 6 weeks after the last vaccination.

Zero days. 


  • For optimal booster effects, the birds should be primed with live NDV vaccines.
  • Do not administer less than the recommended dosage.
  • Allow the vaccine to reach room temperature (20-25°C) before use.
  • The vaccine may occasionally separate into two layers on storage. This in no way affects its potency, but the vaccine should be shaken vigorously before and during use to ensure good emulsification. 


The vaccine dose (0.2 mL/bird) should be administered subcutaneously in the lower part of the neck or intramuscularly in the thigh or breast muscles.


Before use, the vaccine should be shaken well to ensure proper mixing. Sterile injection equipment should be used to avoid contamination. Do not use MEFLUVAC™ H9+ND IMMUBOOST if you notice critical irreversible separation of the emulsion.

  • Subcutaneous injection: in the lower part of the neck. The needle should be inserted just under the skin in a direction away from the head and in a straight line with the neck.
  • Intramuscular injection: in the breast muscles by inserting the needle with a 45° angle to avoid intraperitoneal injection.

Storage Precautions

  • Store and transport refrigerated (+2°C to +8°C).
  • Do not freeze.
  • Store in a dry place protected from direct sunlight.
  • Do not use this product after the expiry date.
  • Shelf life after first opening the bottle: 3 hours.


MEFLUVAC™ H9+ND IMMUBOOST is packed and presented in 500 mL (2500 doses) polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles.
