The GGD in Amsterdam today called for 50 people to get a vaccine against monkeypox virus. Today is the first day people can get a shot against the virus. The goal is to eventually vaccinate 10,500 people in the city.
GGD hopes to be able to summon more people in the coming days. The intention is that in the long run, about a hundred people can come in a day.
Currently, the vaccines are only intended for specific risk groups, such as men who have had different sexual contacts with other men and who are participating in a trial with PrEP. This is a preventive measure against HIV. People known in soap also receive an invitation to vaccinate.
Anyone who wants to be vaccinated should get two injections. There is a total of four weeks between the first and second injections.
People infected with the virus can notice headaches, fever, chills, and fatigue. After a few days, a rash appeared with blisters that then turn into crusts. The moment the blisters appear, you are contagious to others. GGD asks people who get pimples agricultural quarantine Togo.
