Smallpox of monkeys, Bassetti: “It’s not time to vaccinate everyone”

-

“We cannot say to the population ‘from tomorrow we will vaccinate you against smallpox’, because it would mean that we are facing an emergency. We can possibly evaluate immunization against smallpox on health workers and on some categories at risk, if there are any . But it is not the time to extend vaccination. Let’s wait how the cases evolve and then we will decide. ” So at Adnkronos Salute Matteo Bassetti, director of Infectious Diseases of the San Martino Polyclinic in Genoa, returns to the possibility of resuming anti-smallpox vaccinations, given the cases of monkeypox also in Italy. While the raising of the emergency level decided by the WHO “is correct for an awareness of the whole health and medical world in the world, Bassetti asserts – if you have a suspected case you must know how to recognize it. This allows us to first identify the infections, isolate them and intervene in the correct way “.
