Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “How to get a vaccine against monkeypox in the US. Who should get one?”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Cases of monkeypox are increasing across the U.S., and as health officials maintain the threat to the general population is low, efforts to vaccinate those at risk have begun.

The disease, which is caused by a virus and was first identified in humans in 1970, according to the World Health Organization, has usually been seen in parts of Central and West Africa. Scientists think it has jumped occasionally from animals, probably rodents, to people.

Since May 2022, there have been more than 4,100 confirmed cases of monkeypox reported – and one death – in 47 countries across Europe and South America, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In the U.S., there have been more than 200 cases of monkeypox reported in 25 states as of Friday, the CDC says. States reporting cases include California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington.
