Monkeypox Vaccine


The supply of the monkeypox vaccine is extremely limited at this time. Currently, the monkeypox vaccine is offered by appointment only at specific outreach events, and individuals at high risk of infection are prioritized.

Vaccination is not recommended for individuals who are experiencing symptoms of monkeypox. Symptoms include headache, muscle aches and backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills, exhaustion, sore throat, nasal congestion, cough, or a rash that may be located on or near the genitals but could also be on other areas like the hands, feet, chest, face, or mouth. 

Individuals that are interested in receiving a vaccination can register for available appointments via the Georgia Vaccine Registration & Scheduling center:
