One day before WHO declared a global emergency over Monkeypox, The European Medicines Agency approved a Smallpox vaccine, Imvanex, for use against Monkeypox. The same vaccine has previously been approved under another name, JYNNEOS, by FDA.

Reuters reports regarding the approval:

"The European Medicines Agency (EMA) had "adopted a positive opinion recommending that the marketing authorisation for the company's smallpox vaccine, IMVANEX, is extended to include protecting people from monkeypox disease," Bavarian said."

Smallpox is a very nasty disease that was eredicated many years ago. Well, not completely, strains have been kept in laberatories, just in case.

A Smallpox vaccine will now be used for mass vaccination against Monkeypox, which is a relatively harmless disease.

What could possibly go wrong with that?
