News, Resource

People who live or work in San Francisco are eligible for a Jynneos MPX vaccine:   

  • Gay or bisexual men, or any man or trans person who has sex with men or trans people
  • 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 MPX 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 MPX virus testing

  • Clinicians who have had a high-risk occupational exposure (e.g., examined MPX lesions or collected MPX specimens without using recommended personal protective equipment)

If a person receives one dose, a second dose can be administered without having to restart the series, even if the second dose is given after the minimum interval of four weeks.

Since no vaccine is 100 percent effective, it is important for individuals to reduce their risk of potential exposures to MPX both before and after being vaccinated.

MPX Vaccine Sites

People should seek the second dose from their health care provider, regardless of where their first dose was obtained.

The vaccination clinic at ZSFG at 1001 Potrero, Building 30, will continue as a walk in clinic for both first and second doses. A limited number of second doses will be available every day from Monday, September 12 through Friday, September 16 (8 am to 4 pm) and on Sunday, September 18 (8 am-3:30 pm) or until vaccine supply is exhausted for each day. We will provide the community with updates as the situation develops.
