Clinical particulars

Target species


Indications for use

For active immunisation of rabbits from 5 weeks of age onwards to reduce mortality and clinical signs of myxomatosis and to prevent mortality due to rabbit haemorrhagic disease.

Onset of immunity: 3 weeks.

Duration of immunity: 1 year.



Special warnings for each target species


Special precautions for use

Vaccinate only healthy rabbits.

Rabbits that have been vaccinated previously with another myxomatosis vaccine, or that have experienced natural myxomatosis infection in the field, may not develop a proper immune response against rabbit haemorrhagic disease following vaccination.

User warnings: None.

Adverse reaction

A transient temperature increase of 1-2°C can occur.

A small, non-painful swelling (maximum 2 cm diameter) at the injection site is commonly observed within the first two weeks after vaccination. The swelling will resolve completely by 3 weeks after vaccination.

Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

Studies involving the use of the vaccine during early pregnancy were inconclusive, therefore vaccination is not recommended during the first 14 days of pregnancy. No safety study on the reproductive performance has been conducted in male rabbits (bucks).Therefore, the vaccination of breeding bucks is not recommended.


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.

Amounts to be administered and administration route

After reconstitution, administer 1 dose of vaccine by subcutaneous injection to rabbits from 5 weeks of age onwards.

Revaccinate annually.

Ensure that the lyophilisate is completely reconstituted before use.

Single dose vial Reconstitute a single dose vial of vaccine with 1 ml of Nobivac Myxo RHD solvent and inject the total contents of the vial.

For proper reconstitution of the multidose vial, use the following procedure:

Add 1-2 ml of Nobivac Myxo RHD solvent to the 50 dose vaccine vial(s) and ensure that the lyophilisate is fully dissolved.

Withdraw the reconstituted vaccine concentrate from the vial(s) and inject it back into the Nobivac Myxo RHD solvent vial.

Ensure that the resulting vaccine suspension in the Nobivac Myxo RHD solvent vial is properly mixed.

Use the vaccine suspension within 4 hours of reconstitution. Any reconstituted vaccine remaining at the end of this time should be discarded.


In addition to the signs observed after single dose vaccination, a mild swelling of the local lymph nodes may be observed within the first 3 days after overdose vaccination.

Withdrawal periods

Zero days.

Pharmacological particulars

Immunological properties

Pharmacotherapeutic group: live viral vaccine, ATCvet code: QI08AD.

To stimulate immunity against myxoma virus and rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus. The vaccine strain is a myxoma virus expressing the capsid protein gene of rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus. As a consequence rabbits are immunised against both myxoma virus and rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus. After infection with virulent myxoma virus some vaccinated animals may develop a few very small swellings, especially on hairless places of the body, which quickly form scabs.The scabs usually disappear within 2 weeks after the small swellings have been observed. These scabs are only observed in animals with active immunity and have no influence on the general health, appetite or behaviour of the rabbit.

Pharmaceutical particulars
