Monkeypox: Montreal changing vaccine access criteria to ‘prevention’ strategy

Dr. Mylène Drouin, Montreal's public health director, said Tuesday that the city was changing its criteria for its vaccination plan for monkeypox to a "pre-emptive" strategy, offering the vaccine to men who are or going to have a sexual relationship with other men in the city in the coming weeks and months. She added they may have had a "superspreader event" at the end of April linked to other outbreaks in some European cities.
