New vaccine to protect against small pox and anthrax

A new dual vaccine, protecting against smallpox and anthrax, has been created. It will protect those who receive it from potential terror attacks according to BioPrepWatch. The vaccine can be freeze-dried and stockpiled so that it can be accessed should a rapid vaccination of the population need to take place.

Liyanage Perera of the U.S. National Cancer Institute and his colleagues wrote, stated:
"Although licensed vaccines are available for both smallpox and anthrax, because of inadequacies associated with each of these vaccines, serious concerns remain as to the deployability of these vaccines, especially in the aftermath of a bioterror attack involving these pathogens."
