The signs and symptomsof smallpox are pain in the muscles; red rashes, scabs, small bumps or pimples on the skin; if you have a fever, malaise or chills, also common is vomiting,headaches, lesions, pus or blisters. Smallpox also is called Variola.It has become very rare in the United States, in fact it has become aneradicated virus here in the United States.The smallpox disease is contagious and often deadly, however the naturally occurringsmallpox was destroyed in 1980. The lastcase of naturally occurring smallpox was found in Somalia. Clinical Manifestation/ Diagnosis: The smallpox disease can spread very easily,it spreads by social contact (ex: handshakes orsneezes), contact with contaminated surfaces (ex: doorknobs) or by blood contact (ex: transfusion or shared needles). Transmission/ Causes: Vaccine: Edward Jenner created the smallpox vaccine in 1796, making it from a pox virus that infects cows. Because cowpox is similar to human smallpox, infection with cowpox can protect humans not infected with the smallpox disease. To make the vaccine you must take the cowpox disease from the cow and put it into a sterile petri dish,next you must purify the vaccine from the bacteria that surrounds the vaccine and you have created your vaccine! Because you used the cowpox virus to treat the smallpox virus the vaccine is a similar pathogenvaccine. Some of the vaccine's side effects are high in risks to justify routine vaccinations to peoplewith low risk of catching the virus. Kendra RamosPatho. 3rd period3/6/15
