US stocks up on half a million monkeypox vaccines

As CDC-reported cases of monkeypox rack up to 49 across 16 states and Washington, D.C., the U.S. ordered 500,000 more monkeypox vaccines from Bavarian Nordic. 

The latest order increases the nation's supply to nearly 2 million doses of the Jynneos vaccine.
