The San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) is working with state and federal agencies to help control the spread of monkeypox through vaccination, testing, and treatment. SFDPH has received the monkeypox vaccine (Jynneos vaccine) from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), which receives them from the federal government. While some additional allocations of this two-dose vaccine have been made, supplies are limited and eligibility, while slightly expanded in recent days, is still constrained.

Since information regarding vaccine availability and eligibility, as well as treatment and testing options, is changing daily, check the below sites/resources regularly for updates:

  • Here are monkeypox resources from the City of San Francisco.
  • Information about vaccination sites, eligibility, and availability here.
  • Monkeypox resources, including information about access to vaccination, testing, diagnosis, and treatment, through San Francisco AIDS Foundation here.
  • Information about getting on the Strut vaccination waitlist here.

Read my call for the federal government to more robustly respond to this outbreak by quickly increasing vaccine, testing, and treatment availability, and for the San Francisco Department of Public Health to expand vaccine eligibility criteria to help a larger swath of populations at risk.
