MPOX smallpox vaccination

Vaccination can help protect against MPOX smallpox and its complications. It may be of value for certain people who have been in high-risk contact with someone who has had a confirmed or probable case of MPOX smallpox. The vaccine would be administered in the days after exposure, following a decision by public health authorities. Two doses are required for adequate protection.

People eligible for vaccination

  • Gay, bisexual, heterosexual, pansexual or queer men and transfeminine, transmasculine, two-spirited, non-binary or gender non-conforming people who have sexual contact with at least one male partner
  • Sex workers
  • Staff or volunteers at LGBTQ+ social venues or events with on-site sexuality
