Monkeypox: Canada exploring fractional vaccine doses, but focused on 1st dose push

Canada's chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam said Friday that the Public Health Agency was exploring the option of stretching out the monkeypox vaccine into fractional doses, something the U.S. has begun to implement, however they won't be using the method yet. She said they want to get more information on the method first and are focused on delivering first doses to communities that need it the most first.
