#8388 Picture of a Technician Creating a Smallpox Vaccine at a Bangladesh Laboratory by KAPD
This photo depicts a technician in a Bangladesh laboratory who was in the process of creating smallpox vaccine. It was captured by Dr. Stan Foster, EIS, Officer, Class of 1962, and a part of the worldwide Global Smallpox Eradication Campaign of the late 1960s, early 1970s.

***”The vaccine consists of lyophilized calf lymph containing VACV prepared from live calves. The animals were infected by scarification, and the skin containing viral lesions was physically removed by scraping. The lyophilized calf lymph type vaccine is reconstituted with a diluent containing 50% glycerin, 0.25% phenol, and 0.005% brilliant green. Vaccine prepared by this traditional manufacturing technique of harvesting VACV from the skin of cows (and sheep) was used in most regions of the world during the smallpox eradication campaign. The facilities, expertise, and infrastructure required for producing the virus in this way are no longer available.”
