  • Description:
    About the vaccine/contraindications -- Vaccination method -- Normal primary vaccination -- Normal variants/revaccination -- Vaccinia Immune Globulin (VIG) -- Adverse reactions -- Adverse reactions: Accidental implantation -- Adverse reactions: Bacterial infections -- Adverse reactions: Eczema vaccinatum -- Adverse reactions: Erythema multiforme -- Adverse reactions: Generalized vaccinia -- Adverse reactions: Progressive vaccinia -- Adverse reactions: Vaccinia keratitis.

    Because routine smallpox vaccination ceased 30 years ago, many clinicians are unacquainted with the vaccinia (smallpox) vaccine.

    This pocket guide provides health care personnel with concise information on the vaccine, method of vaccination and the nature of the expected responses to vaccination. Additional in-depth information is available by visiting: www.bt.cdc.gov/agent/smallpox

    The guide also includes images and text to help differentiate the more common, self-limiting adverse reactions of vaccination from those that are serious and may require intervention.
