What’s the monkeypox vaccine and who should get it? – CBC

Targeted immunization based on risk — not a mass vaccination campaign — is the way to go, experts say

As the number of confirmed monkeypox cases continues to rise in Canada, infectious disease and public health experts are providing vaccinations to those at risk of infection.

But the vaccines being recommended for use against monkeypox today are different from those used in the last century’s global effort to eradicate smallpox, the World Health Organization (WHO) says.

“Some countries have maintained strategic supplies of older smallpox vaccines from the Smallpox Eradication Programme (SEP) which concluded in 1980,” said the WHO’s interim monkeypox vaccination guidance issued on Tuesday.
