Want to learn more on how to protect yourself and others from monkeypox? I filmed a short video with 5 things you should know back in June. Watch it below and visit CDC.gov/monkeypox to stay up to date! – DD #DDtalksMPX youtube.com/watch?v=9GziSw…
Read more on vaccine considerations here. – DD #DDtalksMPX cdc.gov/poxvirus/monke…
With the up to five-fold increase of currently available vaccine dose supply because of this development, we expect jurisdictions to have enough vaccine to give two doses to people who have been exposed to monkeypox and people who may be more likely to get monkeypox.
Yes. To achieve maximum protection, you’ll need two doses of the vaccine four weeks apart, no matter which regimen you get. The good thing is if you’ve gotten your first vaccine subcutaneously, you can get your second one using the intradermal approach. – DD #DDtalksMPX
We’re working with states and cities – providing them resources and support – so they can now adopt the intradermal administration of the vaccine as soon as they are ready. We’re moving quickly to make sure we can increase doses nationwide with this new strategy. – DD #DDtalksMPX
And for those with less first-hand experience, the @CDCgov released guidance + this video to help. – DD #DDtalksMPX youtube.com/watch?v=TLv1mR…
The intradermal approach is nothing new. Many providers already have experience administering allergen tests or tuberculosis skin tests this way.
When injected in the layers between the skin, a smaller amount of vaccine produces a similar immune response. That part of the body has immune cells important in mounting a new response. Instead of thinking of it as a lower dose, think of it as the right dose for intradermal. –DD
Below is a quick slide I put together recently that shows the peer-reviewed, randomized clinical study’s findings. – DD #DDtalksMPX
Testing on this exact vaccine showed that the immune response to administering 0.1ml of vaccine between layers of skin in the forearm is essentially the same to injecting 0.5ml of vaccine deeper into the shoulder.
On Tuesday, the @US_FDA authorized the use of intradermal injection of the JYNNEOS vaccine by health care providers. By injecting the vaccine between layers of skin instead of deeper into the arm, we can get up to 5x more doses from every vaccine vial! go.usa.gov/xSMSQ
And @CDCgov agrees – on the same day, CDC released new guidance to provide the kind of detailed information that health departments and vaccine providers need to know. – DD #DDtalksMPX
