In brief: Vaccine available
A vaccine is available and you should consult your doctor to determine need for it and your suitability as a recipient.
Please note that you are more likely to get hit by lightening than get anthrax from a terrorist attack.

Biothrax is an fda approved anthrax vaccine & it is primarily for at risk individuals such as veterinarians, farmers & researchers working with animals.

In brief: Not yet available
Anthrax is a bacterial infection which can be weaponized.
Currently the vaccine is only available to the military. It is treated with ciprofloxacin, an antibiotic. The us government. Has a stockpile of Cipro 'just in case'. The biggest, but still very rare, antrhax threat to civilians is from drums made of animal hides (esp. Goats) in other countries. The usda & cdc websites have info about this.
