Default anthrax medicine

Are cruise ships carrying the antibiotic to combat anthrax & and are ships doctors keeping watch for it?

Linda, I am sure the ship security is on high alert for anything resembling anthrax....I don't know if they carry antibiotics specifically for that. However, I do know that 20,000 plus people in US die of the flu each year and 50,000 plus are killed on the nations highways. That scares me more than anthrax. Point? Get your flu shot, drive carefully and don't worry about anthrax.

Rick, I got my flu shot (asmatic) on Saturday. I have the Flu today! I am sick with upper GI chest pains. Sure didn't expect this right before vacation.

I know the more people die of other things than anthrax, but my husband has been
wondering if we should call our MD for antibiotics anyway (just in case). It would
give some people peace of mind to know that a supply is there for all on board.
Lifeboats give me peace of mind.
