The present invention describes a reliably protective avian vaccine that contains a DNA transcription unit comprising a nucleic acid that encodes a viral protein. This effective and reliable avian vaccine significantly improves upon that which heretofore has been disclosed. The present invention demonstrates that the reliable efficacy found for DNA influenza vaccines, formerly observed in experimental inbred mice, can now be obtained for outbred avian species as well. Methods of use and specific DNA constructs are disclosed.
