Smallpox vaccination for emergency physicians.


On December 13, 2002, President Bush formally announced the national smallpox vaccination program. The plan involves vaccinating health care workers who would respond to possible smallpox cases, including emergency physicians. Although not all aspects of the program are clearly established, it appears that vaccination of health care workers will occur in the near future. This joint statement has been used by the American Academy of Emergency Medicine and the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine regarding smallpox vaccination for emergency physicians.
