Webinar - Monkeypox vaccines

Tuesday, November 8th 2022
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Australia saw its first case of monkeypox in May 2022, followed by declaration of monkeypox as a Communicable Disease Incident of National Significance. Vaccination continues to play an important role in the ongoing public health response, but has not been without its challenges.

Hosted by the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance, this webinar will explore the Australian experience of introducing a new vaccine against an emerging disease within a global landscape of rapidly emerging evidence and vaccine supply constraints.

This webinar will cover:

• background on monkeypox virus

• epidemiology internationally and in Australia, with a closer look at cluster events in Victoria

• vaccines available, who should get them and where they can get them

• considerations for affected communities in the vaccine program rollout

• safety of monkeypox vaccines, including safety of intradermal administration

A recording of this webinar will be made available to registrants following the session.
