It is one of my priorities that we keep the community informed about the current Monkeypox (or MPV) outbreak that is spreading across the U.S. We will continue to update this page with any information that we receive about the virus as well as vaccine availability.
There is currently a limited number of MPV vaccines. We will continue to update this page as well as our newsletters as more vaccines become available.
