Similarly, vaccine manufacturing plants using wild-type virus to produce TIPV will need to propagate the virus under regulated BSL-3 containment and TIPV vaccination will be mandatory for all workers and their contacts.
When eradication finally arrives, most countries in the world which are TOPV users will have the option of either going 'cold turkey' or switching to TIPV. The 'cold turkey' option refers to a synchronous cessation of TOPV where all countries would co-ordinate a global mass immunisation day or few days and then permanently cease the use of TOPV.
