Read Here About Mpox Vaccine Locator Tool That Has Been Created

As Mpox cases continue to rise across the commonwealth, the PA Department of Health (DOH) is asking for help in spreading awareness about the Mpox vaccine and the protection it can provide against severe symptoms and infection. Less than 30% of those most at-risk for transmission of Mpox are vaccinated against the virus. Increased vaccination coverage can provide protection against severe symptoms and infection as well as mitigate the potential for a resurgence in Mpox cases. DOH is encouraging any provider office that has not yet done so to please feel free to share the Mpox Vaccine Locator to help individuals find the prevention services that best suit their needs. If you offer the mpox vaccine or provide HIV/STD prevention services, but are not listed on the locators, please submit your information to https://npin.cdc.gov/organization/submit.
