Smallpox Clinical Guidance

 

Clinical Guidance for Smallpox Vaccine Use in a Postevent Vaccination Program

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), collaborated to convene a workshop in May 2013 to help to facilitate the development of clinical guidance for Smallpox vaccine use in a postevent vaccination program. This was a 3-day workshop with participation from more than 80 subject matter experts who represented federal and public health agencies as well as medical associations or institutions.

New recommendations titled “Clinical Guidance for Smallpox Vaccine Use in a Postevent Vaccination Program” were published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) in February 2015. The AAP would like to acknowledge the expert panelists and the steering committee members for their assistance with writing and discussing recommendations.
