Technical Abstract: A survey was conducted to determine the use of avian influenza (AI) vaccine in the US for the period July 1, 2000 through June 30, 2001. Thirty-one state veterinarians from major poultry producing regions were contacted responded to a request for information on AI vaccine usage. Only 7 states had AI vaccine usage. Five states (IL, MI, NC MN, OH) used 2,697,000 doses of inactivated H1N1 vaccine to protect turkey breeders against H1N1 swine influenza. Missouri used autogenous inactivated influenza vaccine in 100,000 turkey breeders for the new H1N2 swine influenza virus. California allowed use of 677,000 doses of H6N4 inactivated AI vaccine on a single layer farm.
