Abstract:

Studying the tularemia literature recently published in the Soviet Union it is found that most authors are convinced of the palliative nature of anti-tularemia immunization and therefore are fully aware of the necessity of supplementing the application of this prophylactic method by the implementation of measures directed against the rodent reservoirs of the infection and its intermediary vehicles like the ticks and other insects, contaminated sources of water supply and stores of agricultural products.
