Imvamune, the vaccine used for the prevention of mpox is approved as a TWO-DOSE series by Health Canada. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends a complete vaccine series of two doses for stronger and longer-lasting protection against mpox infection. Vaccine is not recommended or available for the general public.
