UZ Gent only administered one vaccine against monkeypox virus: “The criteria are fairly strict”

According to the UZ, this is due to the strict criteria. “When there were still too few vaccines, certain criteria were imposed that people must meet in order to receive a vaccine,” says Elien Valcke of UZ Gent. “It concerns people who had close contact with someone with a confirmed infection or roommates of people who are infected. They can receive a vaccine within 4 days of that contact. Anyone who also has underlying conditions on top of that can also receive a vaccine for up to 2 weeks. get a vaccination after contact.”
