Smallpox Vaccination
Posted on January 14, 2005

Conflict of Interest: None Declared

Dr. Lorber states "Smallpox was not transmitted from vaccinated health care workers to patients, and no deaths were attributed to vaccination." It is, of course, impossible for vaccination to cause smallpox, as the vaccine contains vaccinia virus, not variola virus. The latter is the cause of smallpox.

This represents my own opinion and is not necessarily the opinion of the VA or the Federal government.
