Am I eligible for the Monkeypox vaccine?

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to get vaccinated? 

You will need a current Medicare card number, and the vaccine doses will be recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register. Please let the vaccination staff know if you do not have a Medicare number.

Who is eligible for vaccination?

Vaccination access is limited to people who meet any of the following eligibility criteria:

  • Gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM) at increased risk of monkeypox infection. Including:
    • Those living with HIV.
    • A recent history of multiple sexual partners, participating in group sex, or attending sex on premises venues.
    • Other proxy markers, such as recent sexually transmitted infection or those being advised to take HIV PrEP due to number of sexual partners. Whilst many people prescribed HIV PrEP are monogamous with a HIV positive partner, this category can also capture those with multiple partners who are at high risk.
    • Recommendation from other service providers, such as sexual health clinics.
    • Sex workers, particularly those whose clients are in high-risk categories listed above.
  • Anyone in the above high-risk categories who is planning travel to a country experiencing a significant outbreak, with vaccination recommended 4-6 weeks prior to departure.
  • Anyone at greater risk of a poor clinical outcome from monkeypox infection, such as individuals with immunocompromise.

How can my organisation host a pop-up vaccination?

Monash Health is operating a mobile vaccination service. If you would like the team to attend a site or event, please email communityengagement@monashhealth.org and include site details, parking options, and information to help us understand the community’s needs.
