Some people who have been recently exposed to mpox, or think they are at risk for exposure, should get a free vaccine called Jynneos. Getting vaccinated lowers your chance of getting mpox if you have been recently exposed or might be exposed in the future. The vaccine also reduces your risk of serious illness if you do get mpox. People who already have symptoms of mpox (fever, rash, etc.) should not get vaccinated.
People who get vaccinated with Jynneos need two doses of the vaccine at least 28 days apart. For the best protection, you should get a second dose even if it has been longer than 28 days since your first dose.
The mpox vaccine is free. No ID or insurance is needed to get vaccinated.
Jynneos vaccines are available at many locations in Colorado, and there are no longer specific eligibility criteria for mpox vaccination - anyone who thinks they may be at risk of exposure to mpox can get vaccinated. Public health specifically recommends vaccination for people who may be at higher risk based on data from recent outbreaks, including:
- Anyone who has had close physical contact with someone who has mpox in the last 14 days.
- Anyone who:
- Has multiple or anonymous sexual partners, or
- Has close physical contact with other people in a venue where anonymous or group sex may occur, or
- Was diagnosed with gonorrhea or syphilis in the past six months, or
- Is living with HIV, or
- Is immunocompromised and anticipates potential mpox exposure, or
- Already uses or is eligible for HIV PrEP (medication to prevent HIV, e.g. Truvada or Descovy or Apretude), or
- Has sex in exchange for money, shelter, food, and other goods or needs.
- Anyone identified by public health as a known high-risk contact of someone who has mpox.
- Anyone whose sexual partner identifies with any of the above scenarios.
- Anyone who anticipates experiencing any of the above scenarios.
If you have questions about whether vaccination is right for you, talking with a health care provider can help you learn more. A conversation with a health care provider is not required to get vaccinated against mpox.
The Jynneos vaccine is fully licensed for people 18 years of age and older, and available under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for people under 18 years of age who are at high risk for mpox exposure.
Some children may benefit from alternative options for post-exposure prophylaxis. Data shows that the Jynneos vaccine may not work well to protect infants under the age of 6 months from mpox. In these cases, public health will consult with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the child’s primary care provider to discuss available options.
CDPHE-hosted clinics can vaccinate eligible people aged 15 years and older. Parents and guardians of children younger than 15 years who may need to be vaccinated should contact their health care provider or local public health agency. Parental/guardian consent is required to administer the Jynneos vaccine to anyone under the age of 18 years. In addition to parental/guardian consent, minors aged 15 to 17 must also sign a formal agreement to receive the vaccine at CDPHE-hosted clinics.
