Apparently Merck has an Ebola vaccine being used in the Democratic Republic of Congo to stem the latest outbreak of Ebola Zaire, which is the most lethal of the three varieties.  The other two are Ebola Sudan and Ebola Reston.  Reston fortunately appears to be better at killing non-human primates than humans and was first observed at a research station in Reston, Virginia where a day care center now stands.  Anyhow Ebola is a highly contagious hemorrhagic virus that causes the victim to ooze to death within a very short incubation period.
