Ultravac® 5+1 Se B12

Ultravac 5+1 Se B12 is a multi-component clostridial vaccine for the control of caseous lymphadenitis (CLA or cheesy gland) and the prevention of enterotoxaemia (pulpy kidney disease), tetanus, black disease, malignant oedema (blackleg-like disease) and blackleg in sheep and lambs, and swelled head in rams. It also includes a supplemental source of vitamin B12 and selenium.

The product is to be used only in areas where selenium deficiency is known to be a problem; in all other districts Ultravac 5+1 B12 (A11607) Vaccine should be used.

  • Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis (ovis), Clostridium perfringens type D, Clostridium tetani, Clostridium novyi type B, Clostridium septicum (as ultrafiltered toxoids), Clostridium chauvoei (as formol culture). 1 mg/mL selenium and 2 mg/mL hydroxocobalamin (Vitamin B12).

    The adjuvant, which is an aluminium salt, increases the level and duration of the immunity conferred by the vaccine. The type of adjuvant and the purification procedures used ensure maximum protection of stock with minimum risk of local reactions at the site of injection. Thiomersal 0.1 mg/mL is added as a preservative.

    • Prevention of the five major clostridial diseases of sheep in NZ and for control of cheesy gland.  Also, trace element supplementation of vitamin B12 and selenium in one convenient injection.
    • Vitamin B12 is crucial for energy production, supporting ewe reproductive performance, and enhancing lamb growth rates.
    • Suitable for lambs and pregnant ewes.
    • Low dose volume: Ultravac 5+1 Se B12 has a low 1 mL dose volume for sheep and lambs for easy administration. This means there’s less fridge space required for storage and fewer pack changes needed when vaccinating large numbers of stock.
    • Use from three weeks of age.
  • Ultravac 5+1 Se B12 is available in 500mL pillow packs

  • For subcutaneous use only. Inject high on the neck behind the ear.

    • Sheep and lambs: 1 mL followed by a second dose of 1 mL, administered four weeks later. All animals should receive an annual booster dose. 
    • Pregnant ewes: If the animals have not been previously vaccinated, a 1 mL dose should be given at the time of mating and a second dose of 1 mL should be given within four weeks of the expected date of lambing. If the ewes have been previously vaccinated, the dose at the time of mating may be omitted. Successfully vaccinated pregnant ewes will not only be protected themselves but will also pass on immunity to their lambs in the colostrum or ‘first milk’; such lambs should be protected for the first 6 to 8 weeks of their lives against these diseases. In heavily infected CLA infected flocks, maternally derived immunity may interfere with response of lambs to vaccination before 10 weeks of age.
    • Development of immunity: Immunity against the clostridial diseases develops about 10 days after vaccination. The second dose, given four weeks after the first should ensure a high level of immunity against these diseases.  Immunity against caseous lymphadenitis develops within two weeks of administration of the second dose.

  • Localised swelling may develop at the site of injection and a firm nodular lump may persist for some weeks or even months.

  • Store at 2–8°C (refrigerate; do not freeze). Shake well before use and keep thoroughly mixed during use.

    Store unused material between 2°C and 8°C (refrigerated) and in the original cardboard packaging to protect from light.  This product can be stored and used for up to 14 days after first opening.
