Panel: Smallpox vaccine not for everyone
Rhonda Rowland CNN ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) A government advisory panel decided Thursday not to reinstate widespread smallpox vaccination, yet the equivalent of the population of a small town will be eligible for inoculation against the disease. An estimated 10,000 to 15,000 people could receive the vaccine, agreed the Centers for Disease Control's Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices. Included in the group are those who would be on the front lines in treating smallpox should there ever be an outbreak doctors, nurses and possibly even hospital housekeeping staff. The decision came after the panel heard 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.

In 1977 Ali contracted smallpox, a deadly virus that has claimed millions of lives throughout human history. Or did it? smallpox had quite a history.
by Dan Eden Ali Mao Maalin [left], was a cook in Merca, Somalia. In 1977 Ali contracted smallpox, a deadly virus that has claimed millions of lives throughout human history. But Ali's infection was different. According to the World Health Organization, Ali was the last known case of smallpox on planet Earth. Ali's immune system successfully eradicated the last strain of this horribly infectious disease on 26th October 1977, forever ridding the world of this virus... Or did it? Smallpox had quite a history. The first recorded case was 2000 years ago in China. The Pharaoh Ramses V died of smallpox in 1157 B.C. The disease reached Europe in 710 A.D. and was transferred to America by Hernando Cortez in 1520. It was so deadly that 3,500,000 Aztecs died from it in the next 2 years. The virus behind many of Europe's dark plagues, smallpox killed five reigning European monarchs during the 18th century. The last known case of smallpox in the U.S. was in Texas in 1949. With the heightened fear of bio-terrorism following September 11th, 2001, scientists have been trying to imagine potential microbes that could be used by terrorists groups or individuals against large populations, such as American cities. Smallpox, because of its deadly reputation and history, has become the prime focus of this fear. But is this fear justified? Smallpox is usually contracted through inhaling the virus and causes skin eruptions called papules (elevated bumps) and pustules (bumps containing fluid). An infected person is only contagious AFTER the skin eruptions have started. The disease usually runs a course of two weeks, punctuated by high fever both prior to and during the skin eruptions. Early symptoms often resemble the flu. The effected skin is usually left with multiple scars. Mortality of smallpox varies from 10 percent to 30 percent, depending on the age of the population. Death is usually the result of generalized toxemia or complications of skin sloughing, similar to a severe burn. Once infected, there is immunity to further infection.

The vaccine also would be made available to the public, through voluntary participation in clinical trials, but the government would not recommend that anyone besides health workers and first responders take the vaccine, the official said.

THE HISTORY OF SMALLPOX SYMPTOMS Symptoms of smallpox include: sudden onset of fever, headache, backache (the backache associated with smallpox is about the worst backache known to man), vomiting, marked prostration and delirium, and can end in blindness from scarring in the conjunctiva. The early stage may make you very ill. Also early in the illness there may appear (in about 10%) a fleeting rash in the form of a reddening of the skin, not unlike the rash of German measles. There is nothing obvious about this rash to arouse suspicion of smallpox. The incubation period from exposure to the onset of this feverish illness is nearly always 12 days with little variation. (You want to try to catch it at this stage, if possible). About two to three days after the onset of illness the true smallpox rash appears. The early rash will be fading. This true (focal) rash is normally diagnostic of smallpox, characterized by its evolution and distribution on the body.

SWABI: Smallpox epidemic spreading in Swabi
By Muqaddam Khan

SWABI, June 8: The smallpox epidemic is rapidly spreading in these parts of the province, but the district health department has failed to take any step to contain this deadly disease, Dawn learnt here on Saturday.
It has been reported from different parts of the Swabi district that a large number of children have suffered from smallpox, but the authorities concerned have failed to take any action to prevent this disease or immunize the people against it.
Smallpox is a fatal disease which causes high fever, leaves permanent marks on the skin and spreads very fast. Timely treatment and precautionary measures are vital for controlling this malady.
A health official said that the dilemma of the people was that they were not aware of the danger aspects of this ailment as the children suffering from it have neither been kept in isolation nor properly treated. And this resulted in the spread of the virus.
In most of the cases, the children of a family or those living close to each other, contract it at one and the same time.

RELATED All about smallpox The CDC's smallpox vaccination plan Would you get a smallpox vaccination if one was available to you?
Yes No Not now, but maybe in the future VIEW RESULTS (CNN) Experts poring over data from past widespread smallpox vaccinations conclude the live virus used in the vaccine may result in cases of contact vaccinia the spreading of the vaccinia virus from someone recently vaccinated to someone who has not had the shot. Vaccinia, a less virulent relative of smallpox, is the live virus used in smallpox vaccinations. People with skin disorders like eczema can spread the virus across their own skin and potentially infect others who aren't vaccinated. The vaccinia virus may cause a rash, fever and head or body aches. The researchers, led by Dr. John Neff, a former researcher with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's Smallpox Eradication Program, discussed what they found in a commentary in this week's Journal of the American Medical Association released today.

SMALL POX THE DREAM AND THE REALITY by Dee Finney updated 5-16-2004 6-7-00 - DREAM - I don't know what house I was living in, but my kids and first husband was there.
The kids were in their early teens it seemed. I was supposed to go to work, but I wasn't feeling very well and decided to stay home. My oldest son
Michael was sick in bed, but I didn't go check on him. He was old enough to take care of himself and
ask for help if he needed it. Then I saw that my son Ken was standing half hidden behind a piece of furniture and he was shaking
uncontrollably. I asked him what was wrong. He started to cry and said that his arms hurt really bad.
I felt his forehead and it was rather on the hot side. Then I looked at his arms and he had huge swollen
pustules on them with huge red swollen rings around them. I took one look and my mind automatically
said, "Small Pox!". I freaked out. I knew I had had a Small Pox vaccination when I was a kid. I looked for it on my upper
left arm to make sure the scar was still there. My pink sweater kept getting in the way and falling over
the spot so I didn't see it, but I knew it was there.

Story Tools WASHINGTON (CNN) Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist will be able to serve as a front-line responder to help administer the smallpox vaccine following training he received Friday. Frist, a board-certified surgeon, received an inoculation and training to administer the vaccine Friday at the Department of Health and Human Services, making him the first member of Congress to do so. "It is my hope that I will never be called upon to use the skills I've learned today," he said. "However, as long as there continues to be a risk of attack on our homeland, it's critically important that health professionals and front-line responders do our best to be prepared." After Friday's training and completion of appropriate documentation, Frist, R-Tennessee, will be commissioned by the U.S. surgeon general as a member of the Reserve Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service.

The World Health Organization Smallpox Eradication Programme
Smallpox is the only major human disease to have been eradicated. Epidemics of smallpox had inflicted mankind throughout history, and as recently as 1967, some 10-15 million cases were still occuring annually in more than 30 endemic countries (Fenner et al 1988). Of these some two million died and millions of survivors were left disfigured or even blind. There is no treatment for smallpox once it has been contracted. The more serious strain of the smallpox virus (variola major) causes fatality of 20-40 percent among unvaccinated persons. On January 1, 1967, the World Health Organization launched the Intensified Smallpox Eradication Programme. At that time the plan was to rely entirely on mass vaccination of susceptible persons in endemic countries the problem was defined as one of mass vaccination A 1966 outbreak in Nigeria started the evolution of a new strategy. In Western Nigeria, where over 90 percent of the population had been vaccinated, another smallpox outbreak had occurred, apparently originating in a religious group which had resisted vaccination. Vaccine supplies were delayed, forcing program staff to quickly locate new cases and isolate infected villages which could then be vaccinated with the limited supplies. A reporting network using the available radio facilities was established to locate new cases. Containment teams moved swiftly to isolate infected persons and to vaccinate susceptible villages. The Nigerian experience demonstrated that an alternative strategy of surveillance and containment could break the transmission chain of smallpox, even when less than half the population was eventually vaccinated (Hopkins 1989).

What is smallpox?
Smallpox is a contagious and virulent disease caused by the variola virus. Smallpox is an orthopox virus that causes a contagious, febrile disease characterized by vesicular and pustular eruption that can be severe. This disease killed approximately 300 million people in the 20th century. Given its infectiousness and its relatively high mortality rate of 30%, experts have publicly stated that smallpox is the most dangerous infectious disease ever, and that more people have been killed by it than all other infectious diseases combined. A significant international consensus resulted in a global eradication program led by the World Health Organization that successfully eradicated smallpox in the late 1970s. There have been no naturally acquired cases of smallpox since 1977. A fatal laboratory-acquired case occurred in the United Kingdom in 1978. In 1980, the World Health Organization confirmed the global eradication of smallpox.
