Monkeypox: German panel recommends vaccine for risk groups | News | DW | 09.06.2022

Germany’s Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) said Thursday that people over 18 who have been exposed to or are at increased risk of monkeypox infection should be inoculated.

The vaccine advisory body recommended Bavarian Nordic’s Imvanex smallpox shot. The panel added that due to its limited supply, the vaccine should be made available first to people who were exposed to the virus in the last 14 days.
