    I'm sorry, but if they have Coryza, they are carriers. The time to vaccinate would be before they have the disease. Vaccinating birds who recover is an exercise in futility, IMO. They're still carriers. Not sure about vaccinating new birds you bring in, but I'm not the person to ask about that since I don't vaccinate against anything.
