Draft resolution for monkeypox vaccine acquisition

Santo Domingo.- The draft resolution requesting President Luis Abinader to recommend that the Ministry of Public Health acquire vaccines for the prevention of monkeypox has been sent to the Health Commission for further study.

This initiative, introduced by Representative Soraya Suárez, comes in response to the presence of monkeypox in the country.

Monkeypox (Simia Orthopoxvirosis), though less well-known than other infectious diseases, necessitates a prevention campaign to prevent larger outbreaks.
