It would be helpful to understand whether a person vaccinated for monkeypox can spread monkeypox to unvaccinated people.
We're pretty clear on the common transmission methods but self regulation is a big ask so arming people with frank, accurate information would be helpful.

Depends on whether the monkeypox vaccine was designed using the old definition or the new definition of vaccine.

Are Children at risk for catching Monkeypox? They are always putting hands in mouth after touching things! Should we wear rubber gloves now?

@Fr0hickey Sweetie, there's only one definition of vaccine, and it certainly wasn't defined by your good friends at Facebook University. Surprisingly enough, real researchers don't consider conspiracy theories and wild guessing to be legitimate evidence! Who would have thought you'd have to have actual, reproducible data to draw a legitimate conclusion?
