The roles of unrecognized monkeypox cases, contact isolation and vaccination in determining epidemic size in Belgium: a modelling study

Research output: Contribution to journalA1: Web of Science-articlepeer-review

Abstract

We used a network model to simulate a monkeypox epidemic among men who have sex with men. Our findings suggest that unrecognized infections have an important impact on the epidemic, and that vaccination of individuals at highest risk of infection reduces epidemic size more than post-exposure vaccination of sexual partners.
