Ottawa, Oct 6 (UNI) Canada has confirmed 1,406 cases of monkeypox, including 38 hospitalisations, the Public Health Agency of Canada said.

Of the confirmed cases, 674 are from Ontario, 521 from Quebec, 162 from British Columbia, 41 from Alberta, three from Saskatchewan, two from the Yukon and one each from Nova Scotia, Manitoba and New Brunswick, said the health agency on Wednesday.

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommended in an updated guidance document that those at highest risk should receive the two doses "when vaccine supply is adequate."

The rollout of second doses in Canada is starting this week. The second dose, only for people who do not have symptoms, can be administered 28 days after the first.
