Merck Animal Health Announces New User-Friendly Allflex® CleanVax™️ Nozzles and Shields for Intranasal Vaccination

Allflex® CleanVax™️ nozzles and shields for clean, fast, and convenient administration of intranasal vaccines to cattle are now available for order. 

The CleanVax intranasal vaccination system includes shorter nozzles that are less invasive than conventional cannulas, as well as clear plastic disposable shields that can be replaced between animals or groups of animals for more hygienic administration.

Following are the advantages of the CleanVax intranasal vaccination system:

  • Calf-friendly, shorter nozzles minimize discomfort
  • Atomizer tips ensure even distribution across mucosal surfaces and reduce product drip
  • Easy-to-use nozzles attach to any brand of syringe or Luer lock applicator gun
  • Hygienic shields add a layer of protection and enhance biosecurity

The CleanVaxä nozzles are available for sale in packs of 10 and the CleanVaxä shields are available for sale in packs of 25. 

“CleanVax™ nozzles and shields optimize every aspect of the intranasal vaccination process for confidence in a clean, consistent dose every time,” said Jonathon Townsend, D.V.M., Ph.D. dairy technical services for Merck Animal Health. “The system is simple to use and enhances calf comfort, hygiene and consistency, making it easier on both the calf and caregiver.”



Merck Animal Health Introduces the Allflex® A-Tag™️ Feedlot V2 Tag and Applicator

The updated tag design with a self-piercing tip allows for easier application, faster loading, and improved retention, providing feedyard and stocker cattle operators with a new option for visual identification. The tag is accompanied by a new applicator that speeds loading and requires less force to tag cattle during arrival processing, which helps save time at arrival processing while reducing stress on cattle and crews.

The A-Tag is just one in a series of innovations offered by Merck Animal Health for finishing cattle, from digital identification and readers, to monitoring cattle health Additional product introductions under the ALLFLEX brand include CleanVax nozzles and shields for clean, fast and convenient administration of intranasal vaccines to cattle
