The United States is responding to a request for the release of monkeypox vaccine from the nation's Strategic National Stockpile as a global outbreak of cases is under investigation.

There is one confirmed case of monkeypox and four suspected cases in the United States, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday.

In the United States, the two-dose Jynneos vaccine is licensed to prevent smallpox and specifically to prevent monkeypox.A local doctor detailed the risk monkeypox poses. "ACAM2000 is an older-generation smallpox vaccine that has some potential significant side effects with it. So a decision to use that widely would have to have some serious discussion behind it," McQuiston said.

McQuiston said the CDC expects to receive samples from the four suspected cases"today or tomorrow" for further analysis. Labs within the CDC's Laboratory Response Network can test for an orthopox virus, and then confirmation of monkeypox specifically is done at the agency through PCR tests, which take"a couple of hours" to run, she said.

"This process previously took up to two weeks, but we were able to get it posted within two days because we feel like this kind of public sharing of early sequence data is going to be important for all countries to do so that we can all better understand how the virus is spreading across the globe," McQuiston said.

Anyone can get or spread monkeypox, but a"notable fraction of cases" in the latest global outbreak are happening among gay and bisexual men.

There is NO Monkeypox vaccine, none, they are going to use Smallpox and Jynneos vaccine and hoping that it could be somehow effective as well against Monkeypox for people at risk only.
