Re: [RC] vaccinations - Linda Parrish

Makes me wonder too. I'll have to call my vet and see if he reports the

Posting because for the first time ever, my horse reacted on two different
sites this year. Never had a problem with him in the 8 years I've owned him.
He is a 20 y.o. Arab gelding.
Reacted to the west nile (on the right side of the neck) and the VEWT (on
the left hindquarter). Massaged both areas. He was, thankfully, eating and
drinking just fine throughout it all.
That was last week and he is doing great now. I have three others that had
no reactions.

All the recent talk about vaccine reactions has me wondering.....   do the
reactions get reported to the manufacturer by veterinarians?

Human vaccine reactions are supposed to be reported, tho of course not all
are.  But still, if enough are ADR (adverse drug reaction) forms are
the manufacturer is required to re-evaluate.

I know things are sometimes blown out of proportion on the internet, but
seems as if there are more reactions this year than I have heard of in the
previous ten years combined.   I know several folks locally who have had
problems.  Could the manufacturer of the 5way or other common product have
changed preservatives or something?
