During the anthrax crisis in 2001-2002, VisualDx developed a website for the CDC with training materials on the smallpox vaccination and its adverse events.Following this initial work for the CDC, VisualDx expanded licensing of its system to many state, city, and county health departments.
Individuals and families from Afghanistan, Haiti, Venezuela, Mexico, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and countless more countries are fleeing their homelands in desperate search of safety and security.

Refugees placed in your care may be facing a variety of health concerns including unmanaged chronic illnesses, mental health concerns, parasitic infections, and other infectious diseases.

As trusted bioterrorism experts, we created the CDC’s smallpox vaccination website and pocket guide to educate physicians about the smallpox vaccine, vaccination method, and normal and adverse reactions to the vaccine. We also created a smallpox vaccination pocket guide for the Public Health Agency of Canada. From A to Z, anthrax to Zika, VisualDx has been the go-to resource for its approach to emerging symptoms and our dual-use approach.
