A 26-year-old lab employee accidentally injected herself with a smallpox-related virus during an experiment, US health experts have said.
The womans finger swelled up and turned black, before she recovered, according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.
The lab employee, who has not been named, was offered an inoculation against the virus before starting her new job but refused it.

She’s about to join the MCU.
She also went to hospital but was unable to remember which strain of the virus she had used. The patient was injecting multiple groups of mice with different strains and did not recall which strain she used when the needlestick injury occurred, the CDC said.
This is a “professional”.
Offered an inoculation? How about Required to have.
Pretty sure this is how the zombie apocalypse starts.
So what new Superpower did she obtain?
Ive seen movies that start like this.
Her name was Ima Klutz.
So did the Hot Zone
The vaccinia virus is used to make smallpox vaccines.
Smallpox vaccines contain a live virus and can often lead to a lesion at the vaccination site, which usually heals.
The woman was worried about the side effect and opted not to be inoculated.
So this is what we get vaccinated with?
Reminds me of a working companion. While giving his calves a blackleg shot, one threw a fit and he accidentally gave himself the shot.
His hand swelled up, otherwise he was OK.
But smallpox is not something to laugh about.
I'd start looking at the "black pox" strain.
Louis XIV or XV died of it, iirc.
Needle stick with cowpox virus (vaccinia). Not Smallpox, I was reinnoculated post. 9/11 and the inoculation site itched bad. Most get a local reaction, but no big deal.
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
What the HELL are we genetically modifying Small pox for?
Bio Warfare is beyond stupid, one would think we would have learned our lesson when we Bio Warfared ourselves with GMO Lyme Disease and importing ticks to spread it.
300,000 Americans a year get Lyme now and there is no cure available from doctors.
Godless men are destroying this world just like the Bible said they will.
I bet she won’t do that again.
One of your friends?
How do you make a vaccine for a GMO bug you have not finished establishing yet? I suspect a coverup.
Why should she be required to have? What difference would an inoculation of an organism that she already accidentally inoculated herself with make?
