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.
