Video now available | Monkeypox vaccines webinar

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.

This NCIRS webinar explores 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 covers:

  • 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
