      Updated August 30, 2022

      In the U.S., two vaccines (JYNNEOS and ACAM2000) may be used to prevent monkeypox in the U.S. Monkeypox is caused by a virus that is closely related to the virus that causes smallpox. JYNNEOS was developed to protect against both monkeypox and smallpox. ACAM2000 was developed to protect against smallpox. Both vaccines are expected to provide a good level of protection against monkeypox.

      Vaccination is an important tool in preventing the spread of monkeypox. Because it’s not known how effective these vaccines will be in the current outbreak, people who are vaccinated are encouraged to continue to protect themselves from infection by avoiding close, skin-to-skin contact, including intimate contact, with someone who has monkeypox.
