    Good morning,

    It was wonderful to see so many of my colleagues, face to face at the IPC tour in Brisbane yesterday.

    I may have misunderstood the information I was given over a conversation at lunch regarding Monkey Pox.
    I would appreciate any updates and information regarding this, as I may have misunderstood that those who were vaccinated against Small Pox would be immune to the Monkey Pox virus, however my GP dismissed this today. I look forward to your feedback.

    Thanks In advance,

    Kind regards,

    Chris

    According to CDC information, smallpox vaccines are likely to beat least 85% effective in preventing monkeypox infection if given prior to exposure. Data is still being collected about value of smallpox vaccination post exposure to reduce risk of infection.

    Because monkeypox virus is closely related to the virus that causes smallpox, the smallpox vaccine can protect people from getting monkeypox. Past data from Africa suggests that the smallpox vaccine is at least 85% effective in preventing monkeypox.
