CDC Bioterrorism Update: Smallpox Preparedness
A National Immunization Program and Public Health Training Network Satellite/Internet Broadcast
This training was developed for use with Dryvax vaccine. Another brand of vaccine, ACAM2000, has been licensed that, while nearly identical in administration and technique, does have some minor differences; most notably the change to 15 insertions for both primary and secondary vaccinees. Healthcare providers are advised to familiarize themselves with the information in the package insert before beginning vaccination clinics
This webcast is intended to aid state and local health department and clinical personnel in the establishment of public health and healthcare response teams and in planning for smallpox vaccination delivery, administration, and follow-up.
For a more extensive course overview, including goals and objectives of the module, see the PHTN website.
