CDC has developed plans to respond to a smallpox emergency. These plans establish the public health activities that will need to occur at the federal, state, and local levels if a smallpox emergency were ever to occur. For information to help state and local health departments update their own smallpox response plans, please refer to CDC Smallpox Post-Event Planning. If you have any other questions, please contact CDC-INFO.
