    • Description:
      In view of the prevalence of smallpox and the number of inquiries relating thereto, the following précis upon the subject has been prepared in this Bureau under the direction of the Surgeon-General of the United States Marine-Hospital Service, and is published with a view to distribution in States and localities where it may be of service. Smallpox is a disease easily prevented by vaccination, and the preparation of glycerinized vaccine lymph has now been brought to such perfection that there should be no fear of untoward results in its use. The prevention of the spread of smallpox is readily effected by vaccination and other measures, and is properly the care of State and local health authorities. The United States Marine-Hospital Service, upon the request of the health authorities or governor of a State or Territory, is ready to send experienced officers to determine the diagnosis when the latter is in doubt and to offer such advice as may be necessary as to the preventive measures which should be adopted. As has been the custom hitherto the Service assistance is limited as above, except under very unusual circumstances, and then only to prevent the spread of the disease from one State into another.
