UK running out of monkeypox vaccine as cases continue to rise

According to the Financial Times, Britain will run out of monkeypox vaccination in two to three weeks with only about 8,300 doses left in the country.

The article further stated that shipments of a new order of 100,000 medicines would not resume until late September.

“The NHS has quickly stood up capacity to offer the monkeypox vaccine to those eligible in line with UKHSA’s guidance and while supply is currently severely limited, the NHS is expecting to receive more doses in the coming weeks,” an NHS spokesperson said in a statement.

Last month, monkeypox was declared a “public health emergency of international concern” by the World Health Organization (WHO). BKM/ Expat Media
