Smallpox monkeys: Sileri incoming circular vaccinations

"Within 24 hours, a circular from the Ministry will be issued on the methods and criteria for vaccination, and the first doses of the vaccine have already been sent to the regions where the greatest number of cases are recorded". (HANDLE)



 "Within 24 hours, a circular from the Ministry will be issued on the methods and criteria for vaccination

, and the first doses of the vaccine have already been sent to the regions where the greatest number of cases are recorded".

This was announced by Undersecretary of Health

Sileri

, guest of Timeline, the daily in-depth strip of Sky TG24 in relation to indications for vaccination against monkeypox.

In total, we will reach

16,000 available doses,

then more will arrive through the European procurement mechanism.

In any case, it will not be a mass vaccination like that against Covid 

With monkeypox becoming a national emergency in the US, health experts from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

are continuing to study how to make the disease prevention vaccine available to as many people as possible.

The most accredited hypothesis being examined

is that of dividing the contents of a vial of the Jyennos vaccine against smallpox into 5:

if the proposal takes shape, the new vaccination strategy would in any case provide for 2 injections for each person 28 days apart.

To maintain the same effectiveness with much smaller doses, experts have observed that the substance is injected between two layers of skin with a method called 'intradermal' rather than with the classic subcutaneous injection.

FDA Commissioner Robert Califf noted that this "new 'intradermal' approach would deliver as many as 5 doses with a single vial. A strategy that would not diminish the safety and efficacy of immunization."

Confirmed cases of monkeypox in Portugal rise to 710 in the last three months, of which 77 recorded in the last week.

The cases concern almost exclusively men (only four women, two more than last week), mainly between 30 and 39 years of age.

These are the data, updated as of August 3, contained in the weekly report of the Portuguese Higher Institute of Health.

More than 80% of confirmed cases are concentrated in the region of Lisbon and the Tagus Valley, an area that has about 3.5 million inhabitants.

This makes Portugal a country with a high epidemiological concentration of the disease, whose first case was diagnosed on 3 May.

The vaccination campaign, for now limited to a hundred cases chosen from the contacts closest to infected patients, began on July 16 last.
