After years relying on the U.S. government to stockpile and distribute Jynneos, Bavarian Nordic is launching the mpox vaccine into the commercial market.

Jynneos, the only FDA-approved mpox vaccine, is now commercially available in the U.S., Bavarian Nordic announced Tuesday. The commercial rollout means that interested individuals can access the shot at local pharmacies and physician offices, in addition to the limited number of clinics designated by health authorities.

The launch builds on Jynneos’ availability through public health channels since an mpox—then known as monkeypox—outbreak in 2022. It also follows a unanimous decision in October from the U.S. CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices to recommend Jynneos as a routine vaccination in adults at risk of mpox infection, backing the shot’s use beyond an outbreak.
