Cases of monkeypox have doubled in Alabama, but vaccine is on the way

The state health department confirmed the two additional probable cases of monkeypox on July 20, but wouldn’t say where in our state they were found.

Just one week before, ADPH confirmed the first two monkeypox cases in the state—one in Mobile County, the other right here in Jefferson County.

The state health department has already received a small amount of monkeypox vaccine, and the rest is expected to arrive sometime this week.
