Mpox Infections after Vaccination

Infections after vaccination are possible but getting the two-dose vaccine makes getting and spreading mpox less likely. The vaccine may help make symptoms less severe and easier to manage. And the vaccine may help protect you against severe infection, hospitalization, and death. If you have symptoms of mpox, get tested, even if you’ve been vaccinated or had mpox.
