Check the health status of the birds and vaccinate only healthy birds.
Make sure your vaccination equipment and other materials used for vaccination are clean and free of disinfectants.
Calculate the amount of water needed for vaccination. Check the pressure and the droplet size.
Check spray nozzles for any blockage.
Ideally distilled water should be used which is free of chlorine and disinfectants residues.
Stimulate grouping of the birds on the side of the house by walking through the house in floor close houses. Vaccinate in open houses during the coolest periods of the day.
Close the curtains (open house) and ventilation (closed houses) before starting with vaccination and leave them closed after vaccination for 15 minutes in order to let the vaccine reach the respiratory tract of the birds.
