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