Monkey pox – A vaccination center will open in Epinal
Monkey pox (MonkeyPox) is still circulating in France. In the Vosges, a vaccination center will open on Thursday, September 8, in the Saint-Jean health center, rue Thiers, in Epinal.
Monkeypox is a rare viral infectious disease caused by the Monkeypox virus transmitted primarily by rodents to humans and then from person to person by droplet or close contact. The symptoms are comparable to those of smallpox but the disease is less severe. Since mid-May 2022, several outbreaks of autochthonous human-to-human contamination have been detected in Europe, first in the United Kingdom, then very quickly in many countries. Cases have also been reported in North America and Australia. There are no serious cases reported among all cases reported to date, nor deaths.
92 cases in the Grand Est
As of September 1, 3,646 biologically confirmed cases have been identified in France, including 92 in the Grand Est region. The government therefore wishes to set up more vaccination centres. After that of Nancy, it is the turn of Epinal.
The Epinal vaccination center will open on Thursday September 8 in the Saint-Jean health center, 31 rue Thiers in Epinal. It will be possible to get vaccinated every afternoon by appointment from Thursday, September 8 at the Free Center for Information, Screening and Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases, in the Saint-Jean health center, rue Thiers.
Telephone and appointment: 03 56 32 12 73
