You can make an appointment at one of our Mpox clinics via Hotdoc at Armadale Family Clinic if you meet the below criteria
 

Please call to make an appointment at Prahran Family Clinic.

In Victoria, the mpox vaccine (JYNNEOS® vaccine) is available free-of-charge for eligible people who meet any of the following criteria.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

 

Post-exposure preventive vaccination (PEPV): for high-risk close contacts of mpox cases, preferably within 4 days, in accordance with Australia Technical Guidance on Immunisation clinical guidance on mpox.

 

Primary preventive vaccination (PPV):

  • All sexually active gay and bisexual men (cis and trans).
  • Sexual partners of the above.
  • Sex workers.
  • Immunisation providers who are administering the ACAM2000™ smallpox vaccine.
  • Laboratory workers who analyse specimens from mpox cases.
  • Vaccination may also be considered for healthcare workers at higher risk of exposure to patients with mpox, including primary care, sexual health clinics, hospital staff and others, based on local risk assessments. The risk of transmission should be also minimised by using infection control measures.

Two doses are required for optimal protection and are provided subcutaneously 28 days apart. The mpox vaccine takes approximately 14 days before it is effective.

For more information on vaccination, see the Victorian mpox (monkeypox) vaccination program guidelines.

What you told us What we have done
Increase the availability of appointments in the afternoon. On a Tuesday and Thursday we now have several doctors working across the afternoon until 6pm. From late March we will have additional coverage across both  Thursdays and Fridays with another doctor due to join the clinic. Recruitment of highly skilled doctors to join our team continues!
Wait times in surgery Patients are now sent an SMS advising them if the doctor is running more than 20mins behind, as well as the approximate wait time and suggested time of arrival to limit the time patients are waiting inside the clinic.
Improved seating in the waiting room In January new seating arrived which better caters for all body types.
