Applies to: ACAM2000 (smallpox vaccine) and vaccinia immune globulin

Vaccinia immune globulin may interfere with the immune response to smallpox vaccine. A person who has been treated with vaccinia immune globulin should generally not be vaccinated with smallpox vaccine for about 6 months. If vaccination was given shortly before or after vaccinia immune globulin, a revaccination may be necessary. The immunizing doctor should be informed of recent therapy with vaccinia immune globulin so that appropriate measures and/or precautions can be taken. It is important to tell the doctor about all other medications being used, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to the doctor.
