Rattlesnake Vaccine

Our Vet reccomends Rattlesnake Vaccine.... Is there a downside?
We are still going to get him aversion training but figure the vaccine might help or buy time.
Any thoughts will be appreciated......

We have quite a few areas in Oregon with large populations of Western Rattlesnakes including a couple of sub-species.
Most exist in Central Oregon, but one encounters them frequently in the Columbia Gorge on the dry sunny Washington side. There is one hike we do with dogs where we are always on alert. When crossing a scree or talus slope where rattlers are most likely to be found, the dogs are leashed up

Here is a pretty good article from about 10 months ago. It is from the Bend Bulletin. Bend is in central Oregon and is a haven for outdoors inclined people and their dogs:
