Vaccination against monkeypox (mpox)


Please be aware that the situation with monkeypox (Mpox) is continuously evolving and as such, advice may change. 

JYNNEOS® (modified vaccinia virus Ankara – Bavarian Nordic, MVA-BN) is a vaccine used to prevent infection with smallpox and monkeypox viruses. It is also known as IMVAMUNE® and IMVANEX®. You can read more information about the vaccine here.

 Vaccinations are now being given by local sexual health clinics

The Ministry of Health is currently working hard to distribute JYNNEOS® vaccines, which are thought to have approximately 80% effectiveness on Mpox when a person is fully vaccinated (i.e., when two doses are received, at least 28 days apart).
