International News: Britain says Monkeypox vaccine provides over 70% protection

Posted: Wednesday, November 23, 2022. 11:28 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) says that reviewed data for the Bavarian Nordic vaccine in England indicate that the shot provides 78% protection against the Monkeypox virus, Reuters report.

The World Health Organization (WHO) continues to monitor the cases of Monkeypox around the world.

The shot provides 78% protection 14 days after being vaccinated, and a second dose of the vaccine is expected to offer even greater and longer-lasting protection, the agency said.

To date, over 55,000 doses of the vaccine have been delivered.

Studies show that the virus can be transmitted in 3 ways, through direct contact with an infected person’s skin rash; by respiratory droplets spread when someone coughs or sneezes, and by touching contaminated surfaces or objects.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) noted that there has been 80,634 cases of Monkeypox reported around the world.
