* An implementation of early live vaccination for Newcastle Disease (ND) and Infectious Bronchitis (IB) is of high value

in order to induce local protection in the respiratory system of the chicks (priming effect). The right choice of vaccine is

crucial. Never vaccinate very young birds with high-virulence live vaccine. Depending on infectious pressure, birds are

vaccinatedwith inactivated vaccine during the rearing and/or prior onset of lay for booster the immunity. Revaccination

with live ND and/or IB every 6–8 weeks during production period is beneficial in order to improve the local immunity.

A severe vaccination programme especially intramuscular injections may depress the body weight development.
