Default Rattlesnake Vaccine

Just stumbled across this. I'm interested in moving to the Southwest in the next few years, and I think my biggest fear would be to come across a venomous snake with the dogs. I'm not too big on vaccines, but what do you guys think? Has anyone had it done? It's hard for me to wrap my around because I typically think of vaccines as being for a virus or disease-not a venom.

Given they were able to produce this..I wonder if they would be able to produce it for humans as well some day. Would be cool for the snake handlers at zoos or venom collectors, or people that keep hot snakes to have a vaccine for themselves. Maybe even for the common things we all encounter like Brown Recluse or Black Widow bites.
