Quebec expands monkeypox vaccination efforts as virus continues to spread – CBC

Outbreak traced to late-April superspreader event that led to several anonymous transmissions

Jun 14, 2022

With 132 confirmed cases in Quebec, the province’s interim director of public health says the spread of monkeypox is slowly progressing every day and now vaccination efforts are expanding to men who expect to have sexual contact with other men in Montreal this summer.

Quebec has 40,000 doses of the vaccine and Montreal officials expect 25,000 doses will cover the target population in the city.

“There are certainly cases we haven’t seen because it is an insidious disease that doesn’t show many symptoms,” said Dr. Luc Boileau during a news conference Monday.

Montreal’s public health director, Dr. Mylène Drouin, said the city is the epicentre of the North American outbreak.

So far, more than 3,000 vaccine doses have been administered, with officials focusing on those who may have been exposed to the virus. Now, the vaccine is available to any man who may have sex with other men in the coming months, said Drouin.
