Mpox (Monkey Pox) Vaccination

Mpox (Monkey Pox) Vaccination Clinics

Smallpox vaccines can provide protection against mpox because the two viruses are closely related.

The Victorian Department of Health has secured supplies of a new vaccine against smallpox (JYNNEOS) which has fewer side effects than previous smallpox vaccines and can be safely used by all groups of people, including people aged over 18 years, who are immunocompromised and who have HIV.

Two doses of the vaccine are required for maximum protection, given at least 28 days apart. The vaccine is most effective two weeks after the second dose and gives an 80% protection against monkeypox. Mpox vaccines are free in Victoria, and you can be vaccinated without a Medicare card.

The vaccine does not transmit mpox or any other pox virus to other people.

NEPHU is partnering with local community health organisations to deliver mpox vaccinations in the north eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Each week we list new pop up sites as well as our ongoing sites. Clinics in the Western and South Eastern suburbs have also been listed.

  • No bookings - just come in.
  • Confidential - clients can choose to have their mpox vaccination details uploaded to their immunisation record, or not. You can use an alias name if you prefer and can discuss having your vaccination administered on a less obvious location than the forearm. Just talk to your immunising nurse.
  • No judgement - all clinics are judgement-free, safe spaces. Staff are welcoming of all and understand clients may prefer to remain anonymous.
