Monkeypox Vaccine

 

Vaccines nationwide are limited. The Clark County Combined Health District (CCCHD) is working with community partners and local healthcare providers to offer the vaccine to those most at risk as quickly as possible as vaccine becomes available.

The Clark County Combined Health District is using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s tiered approach to vaccine distribution as guidance during this time of limited vaccine availability.  Currently to receive a vaccine individuals must meet one of the following criteria:

  • You are a close contact of someone who has been diagnosed with or tested positive for monkeypox.
  • You attended an event or activity where there were monkeypox cases or known transmission.
  • You identify as:
    A gay, bisexual, pansexual, or queer man
    A man who has sex with men
    Transgender
    Non-binary
    Gender non-conforming
  • You are at high risk of being exposed where you work (lab workers testing monkeypox samples).
  • You or your partner are a sex worker or exchange sex for money, goods or services.

 

Clark County will administer the JYNNEOS vaccine, a two-dose series given 28 days apart.  Second dose appointments will be scheduled at your first appointment.  CCCHD is following FDA guidance related to dosing and intradermal (just under the skin) vaccination.  Vaccine candidates younger than 18 years of age will need parental/guardian consent.
