The figure is a graphic encouraging people eligible for mpox vaccination to get vaccinated as soon as possible. There are human icons used to represent a statistic that reads, “In a study of males ages 18-49 years eligible for vaccination, for every 1 illness among people who were fully vaccinated (2 doses) there were 10 illnesses among people who were unvaccinated.” The graphic encourages getting both doses for best protection.
