Toronto Public Health (TPH) has urged people at risk of contracting monkeypox to get vaccinated after reports of four new cases of the viral illness surfaced. It advises people at risk for monkeypox to get two doses of the vaccine Imvamune.
While giving the advice, Dr Eileen de Villa, medical officer of health said: “Vaccination remains the best way to protect against severe outcomes from mpox. As the virus continues to circulate, it is important for at-risk groups to complete a two-dose vaccination series as soon as they are able.
“We continue to work together with community partners who enable greater access to at-risk groups.”
In a release, TPH said: “Anyone can get mpox, but during the current outbreak, gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men have been most affected.”
