vaccines for laying hens

Asked September 4, 2015, 10:05 PM EDT

Hello. I'm trying to find out if I can vaccinate laying hens with a proprietary GMP-produced vaccine, and still have the eggs suitable for commercial, human consumption.

If the answer is "no," what do I need to do to get our vaccine approved for commercial use?

many thanks,
Carrie

To the best of my knowledge, all vaccines intended for use in poultry must be approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). Please visit their website for detailed information on the the vaccine approval process:
