Abstract:

Live egg-yolk tularemia vaccine used cutaneously causes in the human organism the same special intradermal allergy reaction to tularemia as does transferred tularemia itself. The intradermal allergy reaction as a response to live tularemia vaccine is a specific reaction, since it was positive only in persons who had recovered from tularemia, who were revaccinated, and who had received cutaneous vaccinations. The intradermal allergy reaction to tularemia was distinguished by sharpness during the entire period of observations, in the following proportions during the first month after vaccination up to 95 percent, and at the end of the 24th month up to 44.5 percent. Revaccination may be used within two years, depending on epidemic requirements.
