  • Description:
    Smallpox/monkeypox vaccine (JYNNEOSTM) can help protect against smallpox, monkeypox, and other diseases caused by orthopoxviruses, including vaccinia virus.

    Smallpox is a very serious disease caused by variola virus. Smallpox was declared eradicated in 1980 and no cases of naturally occurring smallpox have happened since 1977. Some people continue to be at risk of exposure to the virus that causes smallpox, including people who work in emergency preparedness and some laboratory workers. The virus can spread from person to person, causing symptoms including fever and a skin rash. Many people who had smallpox in the past recovered, but about 3 out of every 10 people with the disease died.

    Monkeypox is a rare disease with symptoms that are similar to but milder than the symptoms of smallpox. Monkeypox can cause death. Monkeypox is an emerging infection in Africa and outbreaks of imported cases of monkeypox sometimes happen in other countries, including the United States.

    Vaccinia virus can cause disease when people are exposed to infected people (such as exposure to someone who has recently been vaccinated against smallpox) or animals. People who work with vaccinia virus in laboratories can be accidentally exposed to the virus, and if they become infected, they can get sick. Most vaccinia infections resolve on their own without treatment
