Brussels receives 109,090 doses of monkeypox vaccine 3rd edition – Notícias de Coimbra

The European Commission has purchased nearly 110,000 vaccines in response to the spread of monkeypox (monkeypox) in Europe and will begin distribution by the end of June in countries that have already granted them.

An agreement to obtain 109,090 doses of the third -generation vaccine from the Bavarian Nordic pharmaceutical company was signed by the European Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Authority (HERA) today.


Given the growing number of cases, the agreement will allow the vaccine to be quickly accessible in all member states, Norway and Iceland.


Once the third batch of vaccines are available, HERA will provide them to the affected countries, starting with the most disadvantaged.

Given the number of cases, dose delivery begins at the end of the month in member countries that have already authorized the use of this vaccine, on a ‘prorate’ basis, i.e. measured in ‘ny proportionally.

The third-generation vaccine is currently licensed not only in the European Union to protect adults from smallpox, but also to protect against monkeypox.

Hera is the representative of the European Commission responsible for strengthening health security in the European Union and for preparing for and responding to public health crises by its member states.
