Efforts also include improving access to testing and educational outreach. Click here for article.

  • The strategy aims to address the monkeypox outbreak in the U.S. by expanding vaccine availability.

  • Top federal health officials, including CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, detailed the plan during a press briefing.

  • Over 300 confirmed cases of monkeypox have been reported, but limited testing suggests the outbreak may be larger.

  • The vaccine will be provided to individuals with confirmed or presumed exposure to monkeypox, including those with close physical or sexual contact with infected individuals.

  • Efforts to enhance testing access and educational outreach are also part of the strategy, with some experts suggesting these measures should have been implemented earlier.
