Monkeypox vaccination is now being offered to
- gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM) at highest risk of exposure for example if you have multiple partners, take HIV-PreP or living with HIV, have had a bacterial sexual infection in the last 3 months, participate in group sex or attend ‘sex on premises’ venues. Staff who work in such premises may also be eligible
- people who have already had close contact with a patient with confirmed Monkeypox. Vaccination with a single dose of vaccine should be offered as soon as possible (ideally within 4 days of contact but sometimes maybe given up to 14 days)
