#8386 Picture of Child Receiving a Smallpox Vaccine - 1960’s by KAPD
This photograph depicts a small child as he received a smallpox vaccination at a local health department.

The smallpox vaccine helps the body develop immunity to smallpox. The vaccine is made from a virus called vaccinia which is a “pox”-type virus related to smallpox. The smallpox vaccine contains the “live” vaccinia virus—not dead virus, like many other vaccines, and for that reason, the vaccination site must be cared for carefully to prevent the virus from spreading. The vaccine does not contain the smallpox virus and cannot give you smallpox.
