As monkeypox cases continue to rise in San Francisco (197 presumed and confirmed cases as of 7/22), we want to make sure our SFCHC community has the right information for staying healthy and obtaining services.

San Francisco currently has a limited supply of monkeypox vaccines from state and local government that are available by appointment at clinics throughout the city (see list of monkeypox vaccine sites below). However, the limited supply means that although someone may be eligible for a vaccine, it may not be readily available. Please consult the provider for additional details.

People who live and work in San Francisco eligible for a Jynneos vaccine for monkeypox:   

  • Gay, bisexual, and other men or trans people who have sex with men, who have had more than one sexual partner in the past 14 days  
  • Sex workers of any sexual orientation or gender identity 
  • Persons who have had close contact within the past 14 days with someone with suspected or confirmed monkeypox  
  • Persons who had close contact with others at a venue or event or within a social group in the past 14 days where a suspected or confirmed monkeypox case was identified. This includes persons who received notice from a venue or event of a potential exposure within the past 14 days 
  • Laboratory workers who routinely perform monkeypox virus testing 
  • Clinicians who have had a high-risk occupational exposure (e.g., examined monkeypox lesions or collected monkeypox specimens without using recommended personal protective equipment)
