Vaccination Request Form

Post

San Mateo County residents who meet eligibility guidelines for higher risk for monkeypox (MPX) may sign up to be notified about upcoming vaccination opportunities, including weekly clinics offered by County Health.

With increased supplies of the JYNNEOS vaccine for MPX, County Health has expanded the eligibility criteria to include individuals who may be close contacts of those at higher risk for MPX, as well as workers who may face risk of exposure.

Since the communities are in close proximity, San Mateo County Health is following eligibility guidelines from the San Francisco Department of Public Health to avoid confusion and make it easier for residents to access the vaccine.

  • Persons who have had close contact within the past 14 days with someone with suspected or confirmed MPX
  • Persons who had close contact with others at a venue or event or within a social group in the past 14 days where a suspected or confirmed MPX case was identified. This includes persons who received notice from a venue or event of a potential exposure within the past 14 days
