The Biden-Harris Administration launched the first phase of its national monkeypox vaccine strategy, a critical part of its monkeypox outbreak response. The vaccine strategy will help immediately address the spread of the virus by providing vaccines across the country to individuals at high risk.
In Region 3, we are working with the CDC, our Region’s state health departments and our colleagues in preparedness and response on plans for the most effective deployment of JYNNEOS monkeypox vaccine by targeting the most affected communities to mitigate the spread of the disease.
On Tuesday, we were pleased to welcome a UPS flight carrying Bubs Australian infant formula to Philadelphia International Airport. This another of a series of international shipments bolstering formula supply made possible by Operation Fly Formula. See more details on the UPS Bubs Formula event in our Region 3 Announcements and Events section below.
Thank you again for all you do to serve Region 3. Please continue to be well and stay safe.
