What is mpox?
Mpox (formerly known as monkeypox) is an infection caused by the mpox virus. The mpox virus is part of the same family of viruses as variola virus, the virus that causes smallpox. Mpox symptoms are similar to smallpox symptoms, but milder, and mpox is rarely fatal. Mpox is not related to chickenpox.
The best protection against mpox is the FDA-approved, two-dose vaccine. Click below to find a vaccination site near you!
