in the coming weeks, 1.1 million doses of the Jynneos monkeypox vaccine will have been made available to Americans.
“They will get into the hands of people who need them over the course of next several weeks,” Becerra said.
The announcement came a day after the HHS said it had released an additional 786,000 doses of vaccine after an expedited inspection and approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“HHS is working to make these doses available to states and jurisdictions as soon as possible,” Becerra said in a press release. “This action by the FDA is a critical step forward in our plans to strengthen and accelerate our monkeypox response, which includes distributing a safe and effective vaccine to those at highest risk of exposure to monkeypox.”
