Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: ACAM2000® Myopericarditis Registry; OMB Control Number 0720-TBD.
Needs and Uses: The Food and Drug Administration required the establishment of several Phase IV post-licensure studies to evaluate the long-term safety of ACAM2000® smallpox vaccine. Among the required post-licensure studies is the establishment of a myopericarditis registry. The ACAM2000® Myopericarditis Registry is designed to study the natural history of myopericarditis following receipt of the ACAM2000® vaccine, including evaluating factors that may influence disease prognosis, thus addressing the FDA post-licensure requirement and ensuring the continued licensing of this vaccine.
Affected Public: Civilians, former Active Duty or active Guard/Reserve in the U.S. Military, who received the ACACM2000® smallpox vaccine while in the military and subsequently developed signs or symptoms of myopericarditis.
Annual Burden Hours: 20.
Number of Respondents: 20.
Responses per Respondent: 2.
Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes.
Frequency: Semi-annually.End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
Summary of Information Collection
Eligible respondents are civilians who are former Active Duty or active Guard/Reserve in the U.S. Military that received the ACACM2000® smallpox vaccine while in the military and subsequently developed signs or symptoms of myopericarditis. The information collected will illuminate the natural history of post-vaccine myopericarditis and evaluate factors that may influence disease prognosis. Inclusion of civilians who were formerly in the military in addition to current military members is imperative in order to obtain information on those who may have separated from the military due to their medical condition. Conducting this Registry will ensure the continued licensure of this military relevant vaccine.Start Signature
