Monkeypox Vaccination in New Jersey

Monkeypox Vaccination in New Jersey

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
  • People who attended an event where known monkeypox exposure occurred within past 14 days
  • 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 partners within past 14 days

*New Jersey is expecting additional doses from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and as the State gets additional supply the Department will continue to expand access to the vaccine.

Residents who are eligible for vaccination and who also have a condition that may increase their risk for severe disease should be considered high priority for vaccination, including people who:

  • Have a weakened immune system
  • Have a history of atopic dermatitis or eczema
