Similar to humans and companion animals, broilers receive vaccines as a preventative measure to keep them healthy against harmful diseases. The goal of vaccines is to expose the chicken to a bacteria or a virus in order to train the immune system to recognize and respond to subsequent exposure without risking development of serious disease.

To provide information about broiler vaccines, their use, safety and administration, NCC this week posted a new FAQ to its Chicken Check In website. You can access it here.
