Can I get the monkeypox vaccine?

If you feel you have been exposed to monkeypox or are at significant risk of being exposed in the future, you will likely qualify for the JYNEEOS vaccine approved for monkeypox. It is important that an individual get the vaccine soon after an exposure in order to prevent or decrease the severity of a monkeypox infection. Students should contact Student Health Services at 508-831-5520 for help obtaining appointments for the vaccine, and employees should contact their primary care provider. 

Review the CDC vaccine recommendations.
