“With a limited supply of monkeypox vaccine available, we are reserving these doses for residents at highest risk of infection,” said Commissioner of Health Dr. Gale Burstein.

New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has assigned additional vaccines to Erie County, which are expected in coming weeks.

Current NYS Eligibility Guidelines:

  • Individuals who are at high risk of a recent exposure to monkeypox, including members of the gay, bisexual, transgender, and gender non-conforming community and other communities of men who have sex with men and who have engaged in intimate or skin-to-skin contact with others in the past 14 days areas where monkeypox is spreading.
  • Individuals who have had skin-to-skin contact with someone in a social network experiencing monkeypox activity, including men who have sex with men who meet partners through an online website, digital application ("app"), or social event, such as a bar or party.
