Abstract

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States (US) last week released its plans to cope with a deliberate release of smallpox (1). The plan centres on rapid ring vaccination of the contacts of infected individuals to contain the spread of infection. Mass vaccination in advance of an outbreak will not be used, partly because the risks associated with vaccination outweigh the risks of exposure to smallpox.
