Streptococcus Equi Vaccine Live Culture
Because it is recommended that modified live vaccines be given last if other vaccines are administered at the same time, and it is also necessary to wear gloves, there is the perception that the bacterium in the vaccine is very contagious. If the vaccine comes into contact with a non-vaccinated horse, then it might stimulate an immune response. If the non-vaccinated horse were a subclinical carrier, then it could develop some clinical signs of strangles. Research has shown that some horses appear to be unusually susceptible to the vaccine and develop clinical signs of the disease.
