    Hamilton Public Health Services says it has confirmed the city's first case of the monkeypox virus.

    The Hamilton resident "was most likely infected during a recent visit to the City of Toronto," the Hamilton health unit said in a media release Monday afternoon.

    "The individual is currently isolating and Hamilton Public Health Services has notified all close contacts."

    Public health told CBC Hamilton the case was confirmed over the long weekend.

    ... This comes as the country has seen at least 100 cases, including 77 confirmed cases in Ontario.

          Vaccination against monkeypox available in Nunavik

          JUL 4, 2022 – 4:57 PM EDT

          By Nunatsiaq News

          Vaccination against the monkeypox virus is now available in Nunavik.

          The vaccines, which help mitigate infection and spread of monkeypox, are being offered to eligible recipients in all communities there, the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services announced Monday.

          ... People in Nunavik can receive the vaccine by contacting their local community service centre or nursing station and asking for a public health or COVID-19 nurse.

          The vaccine for monkeypox is the same as is used to prevent smallpox. According to the Nunavik board, it can be administered before exposure to help prevent infection, or after exposure to an infected person to help weaken symptoms. The vaccine is 85 per cent effective at preventing infection.

                                Public Health Ontario is reporting 230 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the province, most of which are located in Toronto.

                                The tally as of Monday has risen from the 156 cases confirmed as of July 11.

                                The provincial agency's latest report says the cases are largely in southern Ontario, with 172 cases in Toronto, as well as one each in Sudbury and North Bay.

                                One of the confirmed cases is in a female and the rest of the people affected are male with an average age of 37.

                                Public health says most cases are among men who report intimate contact with men but say anyone can get monkeypox.

                                The report says nine people have been hospitalized with the illness and one person has been in intensive care.

                                There are also eight probable monkeypox cases in Ontario, all in men between the ages of 31 and 69....
