With monkeypox, California colleges seek to control spread of two diseases at once

“It really is a system-level challenge that there just is not enough vaccine availability right now,” said David Souleles, the COVID-19 Response Team director at UC Irvine. “Health departments are having to really closely manage how it gets used and distributed so that it’s hitting the highest risk populations first.” … “The approach and the role that universities will play in a monkeypox response will be a little bit more along the lines of the traditional response we would have had whenever there was any other kind of communicable disease on campus,” he said.
