Children aged 12 months and older are strongly encouraged to get the Monkey Pox vaccine. The vaccine is given by intramuscular injection and is available after consulting with a doctor.
It is strongly recommended for people who are planning to travel to areas where the virus is prevalent. In addition, anyone who was not vaccinated as a child, and anyone who was born before 1967 may want to consider receiving the vaccine as well. Those who are pregnant, immunocompromised or have a history of allergies to any component of the vaccine should speak with their doctor before getting vaccinated.
