Spain approves the dispensing of the monkeypox vaccine

The Public Health Commission has approved the vaccination against Monkeypox. And it has decided that "taking into account the limited availability of doses" it will prioritize those with a high risk of severity or exposure. "Pre-exposure vaccination is not recommended at this time, although it could be recommended later depending on the evolution of the outbreak and the availability of vaccines," the Ministry of Health has indicated.

The Commission met in person this Thursday to analyze the experts' proposals on how to address the growing number of cases of this infection, after the first 200 vials of the vaccine arrived in the country.
