An Ohio Monkeypox Vaccine Locator Guide

Looking for a dose?


Counties, cities and private healthcare organizations are partnering across Ohio to administer vaccinations against monkeypox.

Monkeypox — a viral infection similar to smallpox — has predominantly affected men who have sex with men, trans men and gender non-conforming people, sex workers and people who are living with HIV or compromised immune systems.

The JYENNOS vaccine prevents both monkeypox and smallpox, and is administered in two separate doses, 14-30 days apart.

Currently, doses are limited to members of populations considered high risk.

The Buckeye Flame has compiled the following list of vaccine sites, registration forms and useful contact information for LGBTQ+ Ohioans looking to get vaccinated.

If your city or county are not listed, please visit the Monkeypox Vaccine Locator to find available monkeypox vaccines by zip code.
