This is a wild claim and with the only truth being that AHS is a modified live virus vaccine and offers the best protection available to AHS. Horses can react to the vaccine and that is why you are advised to rest your horse for a 3 week period from vaccination. Daily temperatures are a good idea. The benefits of vaccination far out way the negatives of not vaccinating. Also one should remember that the more horses that are vaccinated in an area, the better the overall immunity.
