For best protection, get a 2nd dose.
In alignment with CDPH Mpox Guidance, the Alameda County Public Health Department recommends that anyone who may be at risk for or in need of additional protection from Mpox receive the JYNNEOS vaccine. Mpox vaccine providers should offer JYNNEOS vaccine to ANY person who may be at risk or believes they may be at risk, and ANY person who requests vaccination should receive it. Providers should not require that a person share a reason for wanting vaccination.
Alameda County is working with community partners to vaccinate:
· Gay and bisexual men, men who have sex with men, and their sex partners
· Transgender people and their sex partners
· Sex workers and their sex partners
· People with multiple sex partners
· People living with HIV
· People who had sex at any sex venue
· Healthcare workers who are likely to collect laboratory specimens from persons with Mpox (e.g., persons working in sexual health clinics or clinical settings that serve at-risk populations)
· Laboratory workers who perform Mpox testing
· Anyone who has been exposed to someone with Mpox, regardless of timeframe
Note: Although the vaccine will now be offered to anyone who thinks they are at risk, more effort is needed to reach Black/African American and Hispanic/Latinx people who may be at risk for mpox. Of persons in Alameda County with mpox, 40% are Hispanic/Latinx and 24% are Black/African American; but only 18% of vaccine recipients are Hispanic/Latinx and 12% are Black/African American.

About Vaccine Availability
The number of JYNNEOS doses (i.e., Mpox vaccine) provided to Alameda County is based on a calculation set by the federal and state government.
Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provided authorization for the vaccine to be given intradermally; this allows for more doses of vaccine per vial (4-5 compared to 1).
