A previously used plague vaccine is no longer manufactured and not commercially available. It was only effective against the bubonic form of the illness. A small amount of vaccine is obtainable from the U.S. government under special conditions (for example, plague bacteria researchers). A new vaccine is under development by DynPort and is in a clinical trial.
