Vaccinating for salmonella to guard against paratyphoid infection should be done after the pigeons are 5 weeks old then twice again with 2-week intervals, then 3 to 4 weeks before breeding. [1]

Before vaccinating against salmonella it is important to first verify that no salmonella infection exists in the loft by having a laboratory test conducted.

Adverse reactions and even death can occur if pigeons that already have salmonella are vaccinated. Vaccinating with an auto vaccine made from a culture from your own pigeons is recommended following a treatment with Parastop, Baytril or Trimetroprim.
