More than 550 vaccinated at Wake County monkeypox clinic.

— A monkeypox vaccine clinic in Wake County accommodated 559 people Saturday, running out of all doses available for the event

The Public Health clinic was supposed to run until 3 p.m., but the county said it was vaccinating those in line until past 4 p.m

“I know demand is high, particularly in wake county,” said Ellis

The most common means of spread, according to the CDC, is when people come into contact with the rash, scabs or bodily fluids of someone who has monkeypox

Monkeypox can spread through the air, but only to those very close by, with face-to-face contact like kissing or snuggling

The CDC recommends vaccination within four days of a monkeypox exposure and says that if a person gets the vaccine four to 14 days after exposure, it may still ease symptoms

Appointments are required for monkeypox vaccines

Wake County Public Health set aside 550 vaccine doses for this clinic

Preventative health director Rebecca Kaufman said in Wake County “we are seeing spread, we are up to 11 cases.”

If monkeypox continues to spread, more people may be considered for a vaccine

“We are going to use those lessons learned and apply them to the monkeypox vaccine,” said Kaufman

Wake County officials told WRAL News they have more monkeypox vaccines doses on hand

The monkeypox vaccine administered at Wake County’s vaccine clinic requires two doses
