Webcast: "Clinical Management of Adverse Events Following Smallpox Vaccination: A National Training Initiative"
Health Training Network Satellite/Internet Broadcast
(Originally aired February 4, 2003, 1:00 PM ET – 2:30 PM ET)
Note: Careful monitoring of smallpox vaccinations given since this program has begun has suggested that the vaccine may cause myocarditis, pericarditis, and/or myopericarditis.
Implementation of a smallpox vaccination program requires clinicians to be prepared to recognize and provide care to persons who develop adverse reactions as a result of vaccination. This program will provide information to clinicians on assessment, diagnosis, management, and treatment of patients with suspected adverse events.
