In the United States will be vaccinated against monkeypox participants of gay pride parades

At the same time, as director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Rochelle Walensky clarified, organizers of parades and other similar events can order additional ampoules with the drug to ensure vaccination on the spot.

Currently, she added, the question is how the LGBT community will be informed about the risk factors associated with monkeypox.

“I want to emphasize that while we are offering the vaccine at these events to those at high risk, this is a two-dose vaccine series and receiving the vaccine at the parades will not provide protection at the event itself,” Walensky said.

More than 1 million doses of monkeypox vaccine across the states have been delivered to the country since the outbreak began in May, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Earlier, on August 4, it became known that the US Department of Health declared the spread of monkeypox in the country an emergency. In some areas of the United States, a state of emergency is already in effect. On July 29, it was announced in San Francisco City and New York State.

As of July 28, the total number of patients with monkeypox in the United States was 4639. It was reported that the majority of cases were detected among homosexual men.

Prior to that, on July 20, it was reported that employees of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency (FMBA) had developed a universal vaccine for the prevention of smallpox, including monkeypox.
