The CDC sends monkeypox vaccines to people at high risk of getting infected

June 7, 2022: -The Biden administration has sent over 1,200 monkeypox vaccine doses for the individuals with a high risk of catching the virus, part of nationwide public health response to stamp out the disease before it causes a significant outbreak.

U.S. health officials tensed regarding the virus spreading faster than expected, have said the global outbreak of Monkeypox is the largest ever.

On Wednesday, the World Health Organization said that there are now over 550 cases across 30 countries. According to the CDC in the U.S., almost 20 confirmed or presumed cases have been registered in 11 states, which include California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Utah, and Washington, and Prevention.

“A monkeypox outbreak to this extent has not been seen before,” Dr. Raj Panjabi, leading to the White House pandemic preparedness office, told reporters in the previous week.

Although, CDC officials are going to reassure the public that the arrival of Monkeypox in the U.S. is much different from Covid-19, which swept the country in 2020. Scientists learned little about Covid when it first emerged, and the U.S. was not having any vaccines or antiviral treatments against the virus two years ago.

Scientists have been familiar with the Monkeypox since 1958 when the virus was first identified in the outbreaks among monkeys kept for research, and its human transmissions have been learned since the 1970s.

Global health authorities have extensive experience successfully fighting smallpox, which the World Health Organization declared eradicated in 1980 after a successful global vaccination effort. Though it is much milder, Monkeypox is in the same virus family as smallpox.
