What are the recommended vaccines to give to horses ?

Customer Question

What are the recommended vaccines to give to horses for spring? I have been told West Nile, VEE, tetanus, rhino, flu and rabies. Is that info right or should it be something different. I am in the midwest part of the US.

Hello I am an internal medicine specialist and I would be happy to help. The core recommended vaccines are EEE, WEE, tetanus, rabies, and WNV. VEE is not necessary in your part of the country. Flu and rhino are optional and risk-based. If your horse is showing or contacting other horses, they would be recommended. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
