The vaccine is about as good as a chocolate fireguard!
Majority of horses carry the EHV virus, which is why when they are stressed - like weaning a foal, going on a long journey, they often get snotty.
When the EHV virus mutates to EVH1 the problems really arise, this type can cause paralysis and death.
I lost a brood mare away at the stud with EVH1 - she had all the jabs at the right time and they did nothing to protect her.
Barns are right in shutting their doors until it passes.
