Best price for a small supply of Marek's vaccine? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I couldn't find the vaccine in any stores near me. My breeder suggested hakes twin city. I compared prices and that was the cheapest ($20+$15 shipping) or you can get 3 bottles and just pay the shipping cost once if you plan to do more batches in the future.

         also you can not store the vaccine once mixed with the activator, and it must be used with in a couple of hrs. if you can find the wafer you can break it in 4ths, and estimate 1/4 of the dilutant then only mix 1/4th. I have seen it for $17 but they want you to buy a cooler for mailing $15 then postage and handeling is another $22, 
don't know why you need a cooler if it is a wafer??
Ive delt with live viruses for hogs before. The virus must be kept refrigerated to keep it inactive. Otherwise it'd be dead by the time it got to you and the vaccine is pointless.
