There was also an account where the vaccine didn't work at all for a horse, as it contracted the virus.
Not quite sure if it is to be taken in a grain of salt, however, there were a lot of accounts from different locations/barns.
And human vaccines give kids autism
That's the WNV vaccine and it's perfectly safe.
Flu/Rhino vaccine I'd inject into myself it is so benign. FEI regs require twice yearly inoculation with Flu/Rhino and quite the initial series (3 shots w/i 6 months). I've never had or heard of a reaction to the Flu/Rhino vaccine.
While it can protect against some more common forms of EHV - it usually only decreases the severity of the virus. And vaccinated horses can still contract and shed the virus to other horses without being symptomatic.
Sticking the horse with a vaccine does not mean you don't have to worry about EHV-1, unfortunately.
