[23-11-2022 02:07 PM]

Ammon News - UK public health officials on Tuesday said the monkeypox vaccine was 78 percent effective, urging men who have sex with men to take up the jab.

The UK Health Security Agency said its latest analysis "gives an estimate of vaccine effectiveness for a single dose of 78 percent 14 or more days after vaccination".

It described the findings as "the strongest UK evidence yet" for the jab's effectiveness.

Denmark's Bavarian Nordic is the only laboratory manufacturing a licensed vaccine against monkeypox, called MVA-BN.

It said last week it had signed a deal to supply European nations with up to two million doses of the jab.
