In brief: Fowl cholera

Fowl (or chicken) Cholera Vaccine was developed by pasteur in the late 1800s.
The disease is caused by pasteurella and is not related to human cholera caused by vibrio cholerae. The human disease, originally called asiatic cholera, is now a misnomer as 90 percent or more of cases currently originate in subsaharan africa. Fowl Cholera Vaccine was never used in humans.

In brief: Old technology

The chicken cholera vaccine, first developed by louis pasteur in 1870 using chicken eggs, has been given off & on in various locals.
It was given to military as late as 1978 ( i got one) , but is not presently available in the us. The side effects of high fever, limited effectiveness & short duration of benefit made the newer oral vaccines the preferred product in the limited areas of need.

PM-ONEVAX-C is a live bacterial vaccine containing the mild avirulent PM-1 strain of Pasteurella multocida. This vaccine strain has been shown to offer protection against fowl cholera >
