Fenway Health would like our community to know that we now have a limited supply of monkeypox vaccines available to the public by appointment.
In response to the continuing spread of monkeypox in the United States, the CDC has begun a vaccination campaign. Fenway Health is one of four sites in Eastern Massachusetts who have been allotted a very limited number of Jynneos Vaccine doses. This is a critical step in safeguarding our patients, clients, and communities we serve.
These vaccines are currently available to individuals who live or work in Massachusetts and meet eligibility requirements established by the CDC:
- Known contacts of monkeypox cases identified by public health via case investigation, contact tracing, and risk exposure assessments. This may include sexual partners, household contacts, and health care workers.
- Presumed contacts who meet the following criteria:
- Know that a sexual partner in the past 14 days was diagnosed with monkeypox; or
- Had multiple sexual partners in the past 14 days in a jurisdiction with known monkeypox.
If you think you might be eligible for a vaccine and would like to receive one from Fenway Health, appointments can be made by calling 617.927.6000, Monday through Friday, between 9 AM and 5 PM.
