  • Public Health Response to Smallpox Outbreak in 1951 Trenton England

    Smallpox is a serious, contagious, and sometimes fatal infectious disease. There is no specific treatment for smallpox disease, and the only prevention is vaccination. The pox part of smallpox is derived from the Latin word for "spotted" and refers to the raised bumps that appear on the face and body of an infected person. Smallpox outbreaks have occurred from time to time for thousands of years, but the disease is now eradicated 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. After the disease was eliminated from the world, routine vaccination against smallpox among the general public was stopped because it was no longer necessary for prevention. Smallpox ...

After the disease was eliminated from the world, routine vaccination against smallpox among the general public was stopped because it was no longer necessary for prevention. Smallpox is caused by a virus that emerged in human populations thousands of years ago. Except for laboratory stockpiles, the smallpox virus has been eliminated. However, in the aftermath of the events of September and October, 2001, there is heightened concern that the smallpox virus might be used as an agent of bioterrorism. For more information, go to the CDC webpage at http://www.bt.cdc.gov/agent/smallpox/disease/ . This is taken from the 1951 film, Surprise Attack, a Crown Film Unit Production from the Central Office of Information film for the Ministry of Health in collaboration with the Central Council for Health Education Describes by means of a dramatized story: small girl (unvaccinated) is infected with smallpox; recovers, but is marked for life. This story of an outbreak in a country town tells how it was caused and the measures taken to limit its spread. The film is an appeal to all parents to have their children vaccinated in infancy. The entire film is available at the Wellcome Library at http://encore.wellcome.ac.uk/iii/encore/record/C%7CRb1676952%7CSsurprise+attack%7CP0%2C1%7COrightresult%7CX5?lang=eng&suite=pearl .
