Intervention Details:
  • Biological: ACAM2000
    Percutaneous administration of a droplet (2.5µg) of ACAM2000 using a bifurcated needle.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Plasma collection [ Time Frame: Up to 3 months ]
    Plasma will be collected from a sufficient number of subjects vaccinated with ACAM2000 to produce approximately 60 L of plasma needed to manufacture VIGIV which will be compared to VIGIV previously collected from subjects vaccinated with Dryvax.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety [ Time Frame: Up to 3 months ]
    To collect safety data for the use of ACAM2000™ smallpox vaccine in plasma donors who have previously been vaccinated with smallpox vaccine
