New monkeypox vaccine plan: over entire target population

(KYMA,KECY/CNN) - The Biden administration is changing up its monkeypox vaccination strategy.

It is planning to use a different injection method and allow for smaller dosages to stretch out supplies.

An estimated 1.7 million people are eligible for the vaccine.

Supplies have been limited so far -- as case counts continue to rise.
