Monkeypox modeling work featured on University of Toronto Medicine Dean’s Report and Emerging and Pandemic Infections Consortium article

Our lab’s monkeypox vaccine allocation modeling work led by PhD candidate Jesse Knight was recently featured on the University of Toronto Medicine Dean’s Report and in an article on the Emerging and Pandemic Infections Consortium (EPIC) website. Jesse led the new modeling study which looked at optimizing the initial rollout of vaccines to prevent the most infections. The study suggests that the most significant number of infections could be prevented by prioritizing vaccines in bigger cities with larger networks of communities at risk, the highest epidemic potential, and the largest number of initial cases.
