Monkeypox: Public health emergency declared, will speed up vaccine distribution, White House says

Global News published this video item, entitled “Monkeypox: Public health emergency declared, will speed up vaccine distribution, White House says” – below is their description.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Thursday that the earlier announcement by the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) declaring monkeypox a public health emergency would help accelerate vaccine production and distribution.

Asked if President Joe Biden’s administration has acted with enough urgency, Jean-Pierre said the declaration also includes a new dosing strategy that has the potential to increase the number of doses “five-fold.”

Having infected more than 6,600 Americans already, Jean-Pierre said the dynamic of the virus has changed and is spreading more “rapidly” than before.

The HSS declaration and subsequent press briefing came as clinics in major cities such as New York and San Francisco reported that they haven’t received enough of the two-shot vaccine to meet demand, and some have had to stop offering the second dose to ensure supply of first doses.
