Original title Manipulation du virus de la vaccine. Faut-il immuniser les personnels de laboratoire concernés? [in French]
Bibliographic information 4th Quarter 1990, No.44, p.389-390.
Abstract Numerous investigations on vaccines currently use the cowpox virus as a recombination vector. The risk of accidental contamination during the handling of this virus has raised the question of the advantage of immunisation by Jennerian vaccination of the laboratory personnel concerned. This medico-technical information note sets out the conclusions presented by the official authorities to industrial physicians in France.
