In a word, yes.

Yes. Strangles vaccines do more to minimize the severity of disease than to prevent it. This is because of the way the bacteria attacks the body and breaks down the local/immediate defenses.

Does it have to be right at the jaw/neck? A friend of mine had a lump just below the jaw on the neck. We thought it was a bite (maybe last week) and now today it's split open and oozing. It is also hard. I asked her to take a temp.... (I know her horse is vaccinated...)

I would have a vet out and segregate the horse, personally. They're around the jaw-ish area... Ryle will explain it better, I'm sure!!

They are usually around the jaw and neck but can also form in other places as well.

I think she needs to call a vet. I just hauled two of her horses to a show in Lexington yesterday (Not that one). That would be my luck!!!!!!!

I do know she gets the vaccine. I get it twice a year.... UGH!
