VaccinesNotGiven: Small pox vaccine has not been used in United States since 1972.And there is no vaccine for Anthrax. I don't know why you would ask this question.When small pox vaccine used to be given,it had some complications short term bu long term it provided life long immunity against the deadly disease. There is no vaccine foe Anthrax,never was and never given

NONE!!!!: Local, self-limited reaction to anthrax vaccine. Vaccinia infection sometimes with eczema and small pox vaccine. If the immunizations were received in 2003 then any untoward reactions would occur in 2003. RELAX. NO LONG-TERM EFFECTS!!!!! Anthrax vaccine used only in a few, very special circumstances. Small pox vaccine no longer necessary because that virus is extinct except in a few laboratories.
