Professor of Public Health, Epidemiology and HIV/AIDS, Dr Peter Figueroa, is warning the country to be on alert and fully prepared for monkeypox to spread.

He was speaking with Nationwide News today, before news broke of a third confirmed case on the island.

Dr. Figueroa says the vaccines could potentially have adverse effects on persons, so proper education must be given before it is administered.
