There will be enough monkeypox vaccines available to fully inoculate target groups by the end of next month, according to the White House.
The administration is focusing on one group they say is particularly high risk, men who have sex with other men.
The monkeypox response coordinator says second vaccine doses will be available for the approximately 1.6 million people in that category.
In the meantime, they're preparing for the possibility that the vaccine may have to be made available to the wider population.
