Do I need the mpox vaccine?

The mpox vaccine is currently recommended for gay, bisexual, other men who have sex with men, transgender individuals who have sex with men. So, it's pretty expansive.

If you haven't gotten dose one, get dose one now. If you haven't gotten your second dose, it's never too late.

Currently, there's no recommendation to get vaccine if you had a previous mpox infection. As we go forward that recommendation may change.

Mpox vaccines are available … and FREE!

Vaccination is available at no cost regardless of your ability to pay the administration fee. Providers may bill insurance or Medicaid / Medicare. Your local health department can also provide information about options in your community.
