Anthrax vaccines on the way

Government officials say Slovakia will have anthrax vaccines by the end of November.

The vaccines will be imported from Great Britain. The government was unable to procure Canadian and US vaccines, which are the best in the world but in short supply.

Anthrax vaccines take up to a year to create immunity in a person. To ensure a 100% success rate, vaccines should be administered three times in the first year and once a year afterwards, according to a US army study.
