. The **Monkey Pox Vaccine** is a highly effective measure in preventing the monkey pox virus, which is a rare zoonotic virus that affects humans and other primates. It is estimated that the vaccine is over 90% effective in individuals who have been fully vaccinated, with a single dose providing protection of up to 10 years.
This efficacy is further increased when two doses 5-6 weeks apart are taken. The vaccine has proven to be highly effective in preventing morbidity and mortality from the monkey pox virus and is therefore recommended to individuals who are at high risk from the virus.
