Spain approves ‘dose-sparing’ of monkeypox vaccine


Two cases of monkeypox are being tested at La Paz Hospital in Madrid, Spain.



Spanish health officials approved Monday’s monkeypox vaccine plan. Due to the limited supply, this will allow for more people to receive vaccinations in smaller doses.

According to the ministry, each dose of Bavarian Nordic’s ( BO Imvanex) vaccine, which is the only available monkeypox vaccination, will be divided into five doses.

The new strategy for Spain follows the example of Britain. Since last week, the European Medicines Agency allows “dose-sparing”. Spanish officials also approved Monday smaller doses for monkeypox vaccine.

On Monday, Spain received an additional 5,000 doses vaccine. The total number of vaccines now stands at over 17,000

Since May, Spain has been one of the most affected countries by the disease. It registered more than 6,119 monkeypox cases.

In 80 countries where the disease is not endemic, more than 40,000 cases have been reported.
