Close contacts of monkeypox cases to get vaccines in Denmark

The Danish Health Authority said on Tuesday that Bavarian Nordic (BAVA.CO) will deliver immunizations to close relatives of monkeypox patients.

Director Bolette Soborg told media, “The Health Authority will administer the vaccination to those in close touch with the afflicted.”

“The vaccine will be administered after someone has been exposed to the sick, and it is intended to lower the danger of a serious course of disease,” Soborg explained.

It was unclear if Denmark had the immunizations on hand or if officials would have to order them. When approached by the media, the Health Authority and the Ministry of Health were unable to provide quick response.

According to the World Health Organization, there have been more than 100 suspected or confirmed instances of monkeypox in Europe and North America, a disease that is generally seen in west and central Africa. During the current epidemic, Denmark has had two instances of monkeypox infection.

According to the WHO, 92 cases of monkeypox have been recorded from 12 “non-endemic” countries since May 13, with the number predicted to climb. “The situation is changing, and WHO expects to see more instances of monkeypox as surveillance in non-endemic countries grows.” In a recent statement, the World Health Organization noted, “Immediate actions focus on delivering proper information to persons who may be most at risk of monkeypox infection in order to avoid further transmission.”
