Smallpox—The Disease & Vaccine. A “Guide to Issues” for CCE Educators
Levitan, Lois; Miller, Sara
Since 1979, when a worldwide campaign succeeded in eradicating the pox, there have been no natural cases of smallpox. In recent decades children have not been vaccinated against smallpox and the immunity of adults vaccinated as children has likely worn off. However, because of its potential as a weapon of bioterrorism, smallpox has again become a topic of government and media interest and—for some—a public concern. An abundance of social and health-related issues are raised by threat of the disease and also by risks associated with its vaccine. Information is presented in large poster format.
