UK Government acquires more than 1,00,000 Monkeypox vaccines


UK: The government has procured over one lakh doses of Monkeypox vaccines to tackle the spreading virus . The NHS has been working towards boosting up the vaccination campaigns in the country as infections have been on the rise.

London has been the worst hit by Monkeypox, with 75% of confirmed cases here only. The Vaccine Minister Maggie Throup has told that due to this very reason, the majority of vaccines being provided in London are on priority. Meanwhile, urging people to wait for invitations to get their vaccines.


According to the latest statistics, a total of 2436 cases of monkeypox infection have been reported in the United Kingdom. Out of which 1778 cases have been reported from London alone. 

While anyone can contract monkeypox infection, the majority of those with the virus are gay, bi-sexual as well as men who have sex with men.

Currently, more than 18 clinics are offering vaccinations, including the Dean Street sexual health clinic in Soho, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, Guy’s Hospital in Southwark, Mortimer Market Centre in Camden and Barking Hospital Outpatient Centre East.

During a visit to a clinic in Hammersmith, Ms Throup stated: “We have procured over 100,000 doses, and that is the most of any other EU country. So we are definitely ahead of the game on that.”

 Ms Throup has expressed concerns over the lack of information about the virus, and the teams are conducting research at various sexual health clinics for in-depth analysis of the infections and causes of the spread. 

Till now , more than 16,000 cases of monkeypox have been reported in 75 countries as stated by WHO director general Dr Tedros Adhanon Ghebreyesus.
