Panel considers reinstating smallpox vaccines
Rhonda Rowland CNN ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) A government advisory panel considering whether to recommend resumption of smallpox vaccinations in America heard first Wednesday from scientists who argued against reinstating mass vaccinations for the general public. Routine smallpox vaccinations were discontinued in the United States in 1972, and the disease was eradicated globally in 1980. But after the September 11 terrorist attacks, government officials began stockpiling vaccine and looking at U.S. vaccination policy because of the possible use of the virus in a biological weapon. Dr. Walter Ornstein, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Immunization Program, said diphtheria, measles and mumps are much more contagious than smallpox, which is not easily transmitted airborne and smallpox's obvious symptoms would key doctors into its presence quickly. The smallpox vaccine is effective even if given several days after a person is exposed to the disease. Ornstein cited data from cases of smallpox in Europe between 1955 and 1971 that showed 55 percent of those who acquired the disease did so at a hospital and another 20 percent were infected by a family member.

    (CNN) For the past year, the U.S. government and health officials have been debating whether Americans should be vaccinated against the smallpox virus. Meanwhile, Israel is already doing it. In just three months, the Israeli government has gone from making the decision to nearly completing the task of vaccinating 15,000 health workers, police officers and others that would likely be first on the scene in the event of a smallpox outbreak. And the United States is watching closely, because this is one dangerous vaccine. "The authorities have tremendous interest in what's going on, in what our experiences are," said Dr. Boaz Lev, director of the Israeli Health Ministry. And the experience has been good, according to the ministry.

    Overview Smallpox (variola) is a contagious, disfiguring and often deadly disease caused by the variola virus. It's believed to have first appeared in northeastern Africa or south-central Asia nearly 12,000 years ago. Since then, few other illnesses have had such a profound effect on human health and history. For millennia, smallpox ravaged Europe and Asia. It also devastated entire indigenous populations in the New World, including the Incas and Aztecs in Mexico, the American Indians and the aborigines of Australia. In the 20

    California Department of Health Services The California Department of Health Services (CDHS) is undertaking extensive preparations to protect Californians from the potential threat of smallpox, a deadly disease. In close cooperation with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health departments, CDHS is implementing plans for responding to a potential outbreak of the disease. Those plans include vaccinating thousands of health care workers who would care for individuals who were exposed to smallpox, investigate any potential new cases of the disease and vaccinate others.
    There has not been a case of smallpox in the United States since 1949. The World Health Organization declared smallpox to be eradicated in 1980. Although the risk of a smallpox outbreak is low, the consequences of such an event would be great. Therefore, CDHS is taking responsible actions to ensure the health and safety of all Californians.
    Smallpox vaccinations are strictly voluntary. Because of its risks, the smallpox vaccine is not recommended for the general public at this time.

    Colorado began voluntary smallpox vaccinations for a small number of hospital workers and public health investigators in early February of 2003. Smallpox outbreaks have occurred for thousands of years, but the disease was completely eliminated after a successful worldwide vaccination program. The last case of smallpox in the United States was in 1949. The last naturally occurring case in the world was in Somalia in 1977.

    By David Brown
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Wednesday, April 28, 2004; Page A06 Researchers at the U.S. Army laboratories at Fort Detrick in Frederick reported a major advance yesterday in the search for a safer smallpox vaccine. An experimental vaccine made from pieces of the live virus currently used as a smallpox vaccine protected monkeys against monkeypox, their version of the fatal illness. The protection was not absolute the animals got mildly ill and developed the characteristic pox rash but it was good enough to keep them from dying. The federal government currently vaccinates many members of the military against smallpox, a disease that was eradicated 26 years ago but that some experts believe might be used as a bioterrorism weapon. Both federal and state governments have urged hospitals to vaccinate a small number of physicians, nurses and technicians as the first step in homeland defense against the infection. Both efforts, however, have been marred by problems. The military program has experienced an unexpected number of cases of a rare complication, a heart-muscle inflammation called myocarditis. The program for health care workers has barely gotten off the ground because many people refuse to accept the small but real risks of the vaccine, which is a live virus related to smallpox that replicates in a person's body after inoculation.

    A smallpox shot?
    By Sanjay Gupta
    Story Tools President Bush has finally revealed his plans for protecting the nation against the threat of a smallpox attack, starting with vaccinations for the military, emergency medical personnel, and the Commander in Chief, but it's still not clear what the rest of us are supposed to do. Although the President is not recommending vaccinations for the general public (or his family) at this point, the Administration is known to be stockpiling enough vaccine to begin offering it to every man, woman and child by 2004. These vaccinations will be voluntary, which means we have to decide for ourselves whether the small but real risk of complications from the shot is worth the considerable risk of dying from smallpox if an outbreak occurs. It's a tricky issue because this particular vaccine is one of medicine's most dangerous. It doesn't contain the smallpox virus, but it does use a live version of a related one, called vaccinia, that can make you sick and, in rare instances, kill you. Most people just get a blister at the injection site and maybe some swelling of the arm. Others will feel tired or develop a low-grade fever; about a third will feel ill enough to miss work or school. Out of 1 million people, between 15 and 60 will develop serious complications, including encephalitis (swelling of the brain).

    Elizabeth Cohen: The smallpox vaccine 'kit'
    Story Tools ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) Smallpox hasn't been seen in the United States for decades, but federal officials are drawing up contingency plans in case terrorism brings the disease back. CNN Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen joined Anchor Fredricka Whitfield with details on the latest move by health officials. COHEN : The problem is that half of the population in the United States has not been vaccinated for smallpox because we stopped vaccinating people in 1971. And even for those of us who have been vaccinated, it is not clear whether we would have any kind of protection. So the CDC has just put out their smallpox guidelines, Smallpox Vaccination Clinic Guide, it is on their Web site, and it's a plan for voluntary mass vaccinations in the event of a smallpox outbreak. The "in the event" part is very important. They are not saying, let's vaccinate everybody now like we used to in the old days. They are saying in the event of an outbreak, we may need to do a mass vaccination of everybody on a voluntary basis. They have left themselves some wiggle room. Why not just vaccinate everyone right now? The reason is that the vaccination itself can be quite dangerous. It could cause encephalitis, for example. It can even cause death. If they vaccinated the entire population of the United States, between 300 and 350 people would die.

    U.S. trying to boost smallpox vaccine supply
    By Rhonda Rowland CNN Atlanta Bureau ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) Federal health officials has asked eight pharmaceutical companies if they could deliver 250 million doses of smallpox vaccine within a year. The deadline for companies to answer was extended by a day to Thursday. "We sent out eight requests and we got 10 responses," Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson said Wednesday. "This means we'll have good negotiations and we will meet our price." MORE STORIES CDC leads battle in disease fight A letter sent to companies says "the award of any contract will be based on availability of funds." President Bush has asked Congress to set aside $509 million to develop and produce the new vaccine. The letter asks companies to provide a detailed capability statement. It says the vaccine could be delivered in increments of 50 million doses, but the full 250 million would have to be delivered in the shortest possible time, not to exceed one year. Thompson wants production to begin before the end of this year with a goal to increase the smallpox vaccine stockpile to a total of 300 million doses.

    Larger smallpox vaccination plan proposed
    Story Tools
    ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) A federal advisory committee voted Wednesday to recommend vaccinating about 510,000 hospital workers against smallpox after the Bush administration suggested that its initial proposal fell short. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted 8-1 for the plan, which calls for hospital personnel who would deal with a biological attack such as emergency room doctors and nurses to be inoculated first. That amounts to about 100 workers per hospital in each of 5,000 hospitals in the country. The vaccine would then be offered to other health care and emergency workers paramedics, firefighters, police officers requiring between 6 million and 10 million doses. Finally it would be offered to the public. The World Health Organization declared smallpox eradicated worldwide in 1980, and the immunization programs that had led to the virus' disappearance were discontinued. Routine smallpox inoculations in the United States ended in 1972.
