Wright, J., Quinn, C., Shadomy, S., et al. (2010). Use of Anthrax Vaccine in the United States: Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), 2009. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. 59(RR06):1-30.
This Mortality and Morbidity Weekly Report provides recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for anthrax vaccine adsorbed (AVA). The report discusses updated information on anthrax epidemiology, and summarizes the evidence regarding the effectiveness and efficacy, immunogenicity, and safety of the AVA vaccine. Authors identify areas for future research and conclude by providing recommendations for pre-exposure and post-exposure use in general and specific subpopulations, including children, pregnant and breastfeeding women, and those with various occupational exposures.
