But officials at the ministry, and at the company that would probably supply the vaccine, admitted it could take 10 months before the requested 10 million doses of the vaccine were delivered -- enough, when diluted, for every Canadian. Smallpox lesions on the skin are shown in this photograph taken in 1973 in Bangladesh. Smallpox infection, which was eliminated from the world in 1977, is caused by the variola virus with an incubation period of about 12 days following exposure. Initial symptoms include high fever, fatigue, and head and back aches. A characteristic rash, most prominent on the face, arms, and legs, follows in 2-3 days. The rash starts with flat red lesions that evolve at the same rate. Lesions become pus-filled and begin to crust early in the second week. Scabs develop and then separate and fall off after about 3-4 weeks. The majority of patients with smallpox recover, but death occurs in up to 30% of cases. Routine vaccination against smallpox ended in 1972. Photo by Reuters (Handout) REUTERS
