Smallpox Vaccine Administration Video

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

As part of our bioterrorism preparedness activities, public health and hospital-based healthcare providers should again become familiar with smallpox vaccine and the technique for its administration. This video describes smallpox vaccine and common reactions following vaccination; how to screen potential vaccinees for contraindications to vaccination; how to administer smallpox vaccine; and how to care for the vaccination site.
