At this time, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is recommending the JYNNEOS vaccine for general vaccination. There are no longer "eligibility" criteria to receive JYNNEOS vaccine, and persons who request vaccination can now receive it without having to attest to specific risk factors.

How can I get vaccinated with the Mpox vaccine (JYNNEOS)?

Orange County Health Care Agency (HCA) is providing 1st and 2nd doses of Jynneos vaccine (for mpox) as follows:

  • Monday through Friday through HCA Public Health Services Family Health Clinic
  • Time: 8:00am to 11:30am and 1:00pm to 4:00pm
  • By appointment only at 1725 W. 17th Street, Santa Ana, CA 92706
