Buzz from the Beehive
Just three press statements have been issued from the Beehive this year, each in the name of Ayesha Verrall as Associate Minister of Health.
The latest, headed Monkeypox vaccination available to eligible people from next week, tells us a vaccine for people at risk of mpox (Monkeypox) will be available if prescribed by a medical practitioner to people who meet eligibility criteria from Monday 16 January.
But as TV One reported, the vaccine has not yet been approved for use here, which limits any big promotion or marketing.
It is illegal to promote or advertise unapproved medicines, the TV One report explained.
The government therefore won’t specify the name of the vaccine, even though it’s about to become available.
