US orders millions of smallpox vaccines

Following confirmation that monkeypox has made its way to the U.S., the government ordered millions of doses of a vaccine that protects against the virus.

Bavarian Nordic, the biotech company that makes the vaccine, has announced a $119 million order placed by the U.S., with the option to buy $180 million more if it wants. Should that second option be exercised, it would work out to approximately 13 million doses.

The order will convert existing smallpox vaccines, which are also effective against monkeypox, into freeze-dried versions, which have a longer shelf life. The converted vaccines will be manufactured in 2023 and 2024, the company says.

I don't know what "normal vaccine" means but many of the most common vaccines require boosters or more than one dose.

These are just some off the top of my head: 

Hepatitis A and B

Flu (annual) 

Measles

Tetanus 

Mumps

Chickenpox

Polio

Well, we are in an ongoing pandemic with rapidly mutating COVID variants so it's not surprising at all that COVID boosters will be needed and new versions of vaccines will be made. 

COVID vaccines are not being recommended every two months, at least in my country. They are recommending a third dose at least 5 months after your initial two dose regimen.

And only those 50+ have been approved to receive a fourth dose. 

The only reason I'm explaining this is because we need to stop with the misinformation about COVID, COVID vaccines, and vaccines in general.

Even if it was every two months (it's not :samanthac:) it's like half an hour max out of your day to prevent serious illness or death :laughga: you can spare the effort and time, I'm sure.

That's a sad chicken

At least in my country it was really a matter of maybe 20 minutes, after the inital run on the first available vaccines there was no wait, just a regular doctor's appointment.

So badly organized (Paris, France), french are known for not being organized anyways. Waited in line with some random paper i had to fill, waited for 3 hours, then sat down, waited again an hour or so, very very long. I get my vaccine, I wait 30 min after. My whole morning was over it was time for lunch
