CDC recommends people with the sexual risk factors for mpox get vaccinated now if they have not already received two doses of JYNNEOS vaccine. Those at risk include (but are not limited to) men who have sex with men (MSM) who have more than one sexual partner and those who have sex with them, regardless of gender. CDC does not currently recommend more than two vaccine doses.
