    Hi. I am new to the group. I have heard there is a Marek's vaccine in tablet form that can be broken into 4 doses for use with smaller numbers of chicks. The last sign I saw of it was from a company called Clausing Company in Florida. The reference was from 2000. I called the number and it is not valid any more.
    Does anyone know where to get it? I have eggs in the incubator due in 3 weeks. Thanks very much.

    Go to my personal page for information on where to get the vaccination, as well as dosing instructions.

    The Mareks vaccine comes in wafer form and w/ a separate diluent. You can divide up the wafer into 4 equal parts, removing only one part to mix with divided up diluent. Combine the two in a separate glass container. Keep cold and use before 2 hours have passed. Keep the remainder unmixed vaccine closed and cold.
