These safety recommendations are designed to reduce the risk of accidental self-injection. It is imperative that any personnel carrying out fish vaccinations follow the safety recommendations at all times
Prior to vaccination, the person in charge or team leader must prepare a contingency plan that includes notification of local health personnel. We also advise you to establish contact with a doctor who has been briefed on the ‘self injection’ and who can act as a contact person for your staff and treating health personnel.
Secondly, you must always ensure that first aid equipment is readily available.
If a needle that has been in contact with fish vaccine has penetrated your skin, you must seek medical assistance immediately – even if you believe that little or no vaccine has been injected.Advice in the event
