Gavin Newsom, the governor of California, has proclaimed a state of emergency for monkeypox in order to support increased vaccination efforts as cases continue to spread throughout the state.

The move comes days after a top health official stated that authorities were still debating whether a state declaration was necessary and after San Francisco declared its own state of emergency last week. According to Dr. Tomás Aragón, public health officer and director of the Department of Public Health, California is responding to reports of monkeypox utilizing the same infrastructure from the COVID-19 pandemic.

72,000 more vaccination doses are anticipated by the state from the federal government. California has already given out over 25,000 doses of vaccination. Nevertheless, public health officials in California have stated that 600,000 to 800,000 doses of the JYNNEOS vaccination were required.

Proponents emphasize using the AIDS epidemic’s lessons in the recommendations for the monkeypox vaccination
