Over 11,000 cases of Monkeypox have now been recorded in the US, with the largest number of individuals infected residing in California, Florida, and New York. Since the first case was detected in Massachusetts on May 18th, this disease has now spread across the country and CDC officials have shared that it may be too late to significantly stop the spread. The Jynneos vaccine, which was developed in 2019 to prevent monkeypox and smallpox, is now being administered in certain areas to those who are over 18 years old and meet certain criteria.
