The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is currently investigating the detection of MPOX in vaccinated individuals. MPOX, or modified smallpox, is a rare and potentially serious side effect of the smallpox vaccine. While the smallpox vaccine is no longer routinely given, it is still used in certain situations, such as for laboratory workers who handle the virus.
The CDC has reported that a small number of vaccinated individuals have tested positive for MPOX, leading to concerns about a potential outbreak. However, it is important to note that MPOX is not contagious and can only be transmitted through direct contact with the vaccine site.
The CDC is working to determine the cause of the MPOX detection and whether any changes need to be made to the smallpox vaccine. In the meantime, individuals who have received the smallpox vaccine should monitor their vaccine site for any unusual symptoms and contact their healthcare provider if they have any concerns.
It is unclear at this time whether the MPOX outbreak will continue, but the CDC is taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of vaccinated individuals. As always, it is important to stay informed and follow the guidance of healthcare professionals when it comes to vaccinations and potential side effects.
