Special warnings for each target species:
Occasionally, the presence of maternally derived antibodies in ovines of minimum recommended age might interfere with the protection induced by the vaccine.
No information is available on the use of the vaccine in seropositive bovines, including those with maternally derived antibodies.
If used in other domestic and wild ruminant species that are considered at risk of infection, its use in these species should be undertaken with care and it is advisable to test the vaccine on a small number of animals prior to mass vaccination. The level of efficacy for other species may differ from that observed in sheep and cattle.

Adverse Reactions:
An average increase in body temperature varying between 0.5 and 1.0 ºC is a common reaction observed in sheep and cattle. It lasted not longer than 24 to 48 hours. Transient fever was observed in rare cases. In very rare cases, temporary local reactions occur at the injection site in the form of a normally painless nodule of 0.5 to 1 cm in sheep and of 0.5 to 3 cm in cattle which disappears within 14 days, at the latest. In very rare cases loss of appetite can occur.
The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention:
•very common (more than 1 in 10 animals displaying adverse reactions during the course of one treatment)
•common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals)
•uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals)
•rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals)
•very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals, including isolated reports).

Lactation:

Fertility:
The safety and efficacy of the vaccine has not been established in breeding males (sheep and cattle). In this category of animals the vaccine should be used only according to the benefit-risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian and/or National competent authorities on the current vaccination policies against bluetongue virus (BTV).

Interactions:
No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product. A decision to use this vaccine before or after any other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be made on a case by case basis.
