This Is How Many Monkeypox Vaccines Have Been Sent to Each State

As monkeypox continues to spread around the world, countries are buying millions of vaccine doses to protect at-risk populations.

As of July 20, there were more than 15,300 confirmed monkeypox cases globally in the current outbreak, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)—almost all of which had occurred in countries that have not historically reported monkeypox. Of that total, over 2,300 were reported from the United States.

On July 15, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that the government had ordered an additional 2.5 million doses of the Jynneos vaccine that can be used to protect against monkeypox, bringing the eventual national stockpile to nearly 7 million by mid-2023.

Of those, only a fraction have been made available to states since late May, with 191,372 distributed by the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response as of Wednesday. Essentially all states in the country have now received doses, though the amount differs widely.

Eligibility information may also differ between states, and people should contact their local health department for information that might be relevant to them.

In New York City for example, where the vaccine has faced high demand, the shot is only available to men who have sex with men (MSM), including trans men, who are aged 18 or older and have had multiple or anonymous sex partners within the past 14 days.

Eligibility in D.C. is similar, with sex workers of any gender and staff at establishments where sexual activity occurs also eligible and encouraged to pre-register for an appointment.

In Georgia only people considered to be at high risk of the disease can get it, including MSM in the metro Atlanta area and men who have had multiple partners in the past two weeks, according to Georgia Public Broadcasting.

In New Jersey, rules are similar to New York City and individuals that attended an event where known monkeypox exposure occurred can also get it.

Another example is Los Angeles, where the vaccine is available to MSM who were diagnosed with gonorrhea or early syphilis within the past 12 months, are on HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis, or attended or worked at a commercial sex venue or other venue where they had anonymous sex or sex with multiple partners within the past 21 days. People in L.A. may also get invited to get the shot by the public health department if they are identified as high-risk via contact tracing.

Below is a comprehensive list of how many monkeypox vaccines have been distributed to U.S. states and/or jurisdictions according to the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response as of Wednesday.
