MPV Resources

The MPV, formerly known at the Monkeypox virus, is endemic in New York City. We have created this public health campaign to aggregate information from official governmental and community-based organizations that is essential for New Yorkers to know about the virus.


While New Yorkers should not be alarmed, everyone should stay informed about the monkeypox virus. This means understanding the symptoms, how it spreads, and what to do if you are exposed.


MPV is a rare, viral infection that does not usually cause serious illness. However, it can result in hospitalization or death. That's why health officials in New York, the U.S., and around the world are monitoring cases of MPV in areas that do not usually report MPV infections, including in New York State.


Anyone can get and spread monkeypox. If you have multiple or anonymous sex partners, your likelihood of exposure is high.


If you have a new or unexpected rash or sores, contact a health care provider.

MPV Vaccinations

Getting vaccinated for MPV can reduce your chance of getting MPV, and it can reduce symptoms if you do get it. Eligible New Yorkers who may have been recently exposed to MPV can get the JYNNEOS vaccine.


Those interested in getting the MPV Vaccination can now schedule an appointment online or visit an MPV Vaccination Walk-in Clinic.
