**Everyone over the age of one should get a Monkeypox vaccine. ** Monkeypox is a rare but potentially serious virus and the vaccine can help protect against it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all children aged one year and older get vaccinated for monkeypox.
The vaccine is especially important in regions where the disease is common. People at higher risk of severe disease, such as those with weakened immune systems, should also get vaccinated.
Vaccination is the best way to protect against monkeypox infection.
