JYNNEOS is a vaccine that has been licensed by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a two- dose series for the prevention of Mpox (formerly Monkeypox) among adults ages 18 years and older, and authorized by the FDA for individuals under the age of 18 at risk for Mpox. Two doses of JYNNEOS vaccine are given 28 days apart.
“While Mpox cases are extremely low in New York State, cases continue to be diagnosed. There’s still a risk of resurgence. We’re taking proactive measures to encourage those at risk to get fully vaccinated by getting both doses.” –Dr. James McDonald, Health Commissioner- New York State Department of Health
