Smallpox Vaccine

Could you please furnish any information concerning the vaccination of CdLS individuals for smallpox?

I don’t think there should be any concern with the smallpox vaccine. There is no well-defined immunity problem in CdLS, although we are currently investigating this.  There has not been any reported issue with any vaccines.
