In Finland, the vaccine used is called Jynneos, it provides protection against monkeypox and smallpox. Due to the vaccine, the symptoms of the disease may be milder or the infection will be completely prevented.  Two doses of the vaccine spaced at least 28 days (4 weeks) apart are recommended for the best protection. A single dose of the vaccine provides good protection against monkeypox. The second dose in the vaccination series mainly increases the duration of immune protection.
