According to the US Center for Disease Control:

Early treatment of pneumonic plague is essential. To reduce the chance of death, antibiotics must be given within 24 hours of first symptoms. Streptomycin, gentamicin, the tetracyclines, and chloramphenicol are all effective against pneumonic plague.

Antibiotic treatment for 7 days will protect people who have had direct, close contact with infected patients. Wearing a close-fitting surgical mask also protects against infection.

A plague vaccine is not currently available for use in the United States.

You may wish to refer to my thread on the topic.

I include 'infectious' as a possibility. Anything related to curing infectious disease would be applicable to pneumonic plague.

Thread is here.
