STRONG ACTIVE PROTECTION that starts at the very source

VAXXITEK® vaccines start where they’re most essential—protecting the bursa of Fabricius against infectious bursal disease (IBD). This provides birds with a strong immune foundation for future health.

VAXXITEK® HVT+IBD was the first HVT+IBD vector vaccine on the market. Building on this trusted technology platform, Boehringer Ingelheim successfully designed two trivalent vaccines.

VAXXITEK® HVT+IBD+ND and VAXXITEK® HVT+IBD+ILT offer all the benefits of VAXXITEK® HVT+IBD, with added protection against Newcastle disease (ND) and infectious laryngotracheitis (ILT), respectively. Trust the pioneers of vector vaccines to set your flock up for a lifetime of performance.


Billions of birds,
one solution

The numbers tell it all: Billions of birds worldwide continue to thrive with the powerful protection provided by the VAXXITEK® HVT+IBD backbone—the same proven platform behind all three VAXXITEK® portfolio vaccines.

The line of vector vaccines that establishes a strong immune foundation

Built on an HVT+IBD Backbone

  • All VAXXITEK® vaccines use the Faragher strain of IBD as their backbone, chosen for its broad protection against classical, variant, and very virulent IBD
  • This foundation enables productivity, reduces antibiotic use, and supports return on investment

Strengthening Immune Health

  • VAXXITEK® vaccines are backed by over 100 published studies demonstrating efficacy, performance, and productivity benefits.
  • Because of their shared HVT+IBD backbone, all VAXXITEK® vaccines provide a strong immune foundation.

  • Infectious bursal disease (IBD)
