Vaccination against Chicken Anemia Virus Infections in Chickens

Vaccination is the backbone of protection against CAV and only live vaccines are used.

  • Vaccines form an important part of a CAV control strategy.
  • Depending on the manufacturer live vaccines can be applied by mass vaccination (e.g., drinking water), otherwise by wing web administration or s.c. or i.m. injection.
  • CAV live vaccines induce long lasting systemic immunity

For further information see trial data:

  1. Serological response after vaccination
  2. Vaccination of CAV positive breeder flocks
  3. Protection in the progeny of vaccinated flocks
