BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - More states are getting more monkeypox vaccine as the federal government tries to stop the spread.

There are now three cases of monkeypox in Vermont, 19 in New Hampshire and nearly 3,300 in New York.

So, far Vermont has administered 34 doses of the vaccine. And there are new rules for getting shots into people’s arms.
