The vaccine for monkeypox is called JYNNEOS.
With the current limited supply of JYNNEOS vaccine in New Jersey, the following residents may be eligible for vaccination: *
People who have known contact with someone who tested positive for orthopoxvirus or monkeypox virus within past 14 days (contact your local health department to coordinate vaccination)
People who attended an event where known monkeypox exposure occurred within 14 days (make an appointment at a vaccine location)
People who identify as gay, bisexual, or men who have sex with men (MSM), and/or transgender, gender non-conforming, or gender non-binary and who have a history of multiple or anonymous sex with partners within past 14 days (make an appointment at a vaccine location)
*New Jersey is expecting additional doses from CDC and as the State gets additional supply the Department will continue to expand access to the vaccine.
Vaccination is done by appointment only.
