I think some horses have gone into anaphalactic shock (sorry spelled it the best I could).

Mine have already gotten the shot, didn't have any issues that I noticed...

Yes we sent back all our vaccine from the clinic yesterday. Seems some horses are going into anaphylactic shock and die when they get the injection. So they have recalled the vaccine. If you horse already has been given the vaccine(like mine have been) and it didn't bother them immediately, then you shouldn't have any problems.
Scary for sure

After talking to a few people today and posting on some other places, it seems there has been two deaths and a miscarriage traced to this stuff, several people have had no ill effects from it.

Let just pray those that have used it will have no problems with their Horses

It may be a good idea to sticky this for a bit.

I used some this year with no issues....

Still probably better then Fort Dodge's 11% reaction rates when I researched it 4 years ago ...

This is scary for sure!!
