Mpox Vaccine Information

At this time, vaccine is not yet widely available in Tompkins County.

The Tompkins County Health Department is currently able to help assist individuals who received the first half of a 2-dose vaccine in another location and who are needing their second dose. Individuals who require their second dose should contact the TCHD at 607-274-6600 to make an appointment. 

As supply becomes more widely available, Ithaca College will work with the TCHD to help college community members access vaccination. 

Vaccine Eligibility

In New York State, eligibility for Mpox vaccine is currently limited to individuals who have been deemed as close contacts of a known positive case. Individuals who are also considered to be at higher risk of recent exposure are also eligible. Please refer to the New York State Department of Health's website for the most up to date information on eligibility and types of vaccination.
