New York: Appointment for 10000 monkeypox vaccines Running Out only in 10 minutes


Recently, the number of confirmed cases of monkeypox in New York City has increased rapidly.

In response to the monkeypox epidemic, New York City opened three large-scale vaccination sites, and nearly 10,000 appointments were running out within 10 minutes.

 


According to reports, on the 17th local time, New York City opened three temporary monkeypox vaccination sites in Queens, Brooklyn and Bushwick for only one day.


However, at 6 p.m. on the 15th, all 9,200 reservations were sold out in less than 10 minutes.


New York City officials have promised an additional 4,000 appointments for high-risk groups.


The New York City government has asked the U.S. federal government to delay the second dose of the vaccine to ensure that more people get the first dose when supplies are limited.


The federal government will begin shipping another 32,000 doses of the vaccine to New York City next week, Gov.


It is also reported that monkeypox cases in New York City are doubling almost every five days.

As of the 15th, New York City has reported 461 confirmed cases of monkeypox, a single-day increase of 19%.


Monkeypox is a viral zoonotic disease caused by infection with the monkeypox virus. In the past few weeks, several European and American countries have reported multiple clusters of monkeypox virus, most of them involving men who have sex with men.

The WHO said that monkeypox cases are often found in West and Central Africa, and it is not normal for confirmed and suspected cases reported in many countries without any travel history to monkeypox-endemic areas.
