Monkey Pox (last updated: 09.06.2022)

Cases of monkeypox first appeared in Germany in May 2022. An unusually large number of cases were also registered in other European countries and other continents. So far, more than 130 monkeypox cases are known in Germany.

A smallpox vaccine (Imvanex) is approved in the EU and can also be used to protect against monkeypox. However, this is not currently available. As soon as we have a possibility to order this vaccine we will publish it here. Please refrain from further inquiries by mail, telephone or Patmed, as we receive a large number of inquiries every day.

If a post-expositional vaccination of contact persons of a patient suffering from monkeypox is indicated, this will only be announced via the Ministry of Health.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) stated that according to current knowledge, close contact is required for pathogen transmission, “so it can currently be assumed that the outbreak will remain limited”. Isolation or quarantine is recommended for infected people and their close contacts. From an expert’s point of view, contacts of infected people must be closely tracked. But that can be challenging: According to the RKI, the incubation period is 5 to 21 days

According to the RKI, people with several sexual partners have a higher risk of infection than others. Especially with them, anonymous contacts may also play a role.
