Description:Caption:
This 2002 photograph depicts three of the items contained in the box depicted in PHIL 2671, which included the diluent used to reconstitute the dried smallpox vaccine, a vial of Dryvax® dried calf lymph type smallpox vaccine, which when reconstituted, would produce 100 vaccine doses, and a bifurcated needle, which during the vaccination process, would introduce a single vaccine dose through the recipient’s skin surface. As of 2007, Dryvax® had been replaced with ACAM2000®, manufactured by Acambis, a division of Sanofi Pasteur. Vaccinia vaccine does not contain smallpox (variola) virus, but does contain live, Vaccinia viral particles. See PHIL 2667, for an image showing you a loaded needle, and its dose of vaccinial vaccine ready to be administered to a vaccine recipient.
