Immunizations & Bioterrorism

Bioweapons threat could include the deliberate release of a biological agent by attackers that causes one or more variety of different diseases. The use of effective vaccines would likely to protect lives and limit disease spread in a biological weapons emergency. Licensed vaccines are currently available for a few threats, such as anthrax and smallpox, and research is underway to develop and produce vaccines for other threats, such as tularaemia, Ebola virus, and Marburg virus. Many bioweapon disease threats, however, lack a corresponding vaccine, and for those that do, significant challenges exist to their successful use in an emergency situation.
