Monkeypox Vaccine Clinic Returns to Utah Pride Center on November 2nd

Thanks to our friends at the Salt Lake County Health Department, the Utah Pride Center is pleased to announce another free Monkeypox vaccine clinic on Wednesday, November 2nd. The Health Department will provide both 1st and 2nd doses of the Mpox vaccine. This clinic will run at the same time as our regularly scheduled HIV rapid testing clinic, which happens on the first Wednesday of each month from 4:00pm-6:30pm. 

This will be the second Monkeypox clinic held at the Utah Pride Center after the success of our first one on Sept. 7th. In total, the health department administered dozens of Mpox vaccines as well as a number of flu shots, HIV tests, and meningococcal vaccines.  

The Monkeypox vaccine is given in 2 doses, at least 4 weeks apart from each other. Those who received their first dose at our September clinic are welcome to get their 2nd shot at the November clinic. Alternatively, you can contact the health department to schedule an appointment sooner. Call (385) 468-4100 to get started. If you live outside of Salt Lake County, but wish to get vaccinated, a list of vaccine clinics around the state can be found at the end of this article. 

Due to a national shortage at the time of this article, the health department is limiting vaccines to the most-vulnerable populations: men, trans, and nonbinary folx who have sex with men. However, the virus doesn’t see gender. Anyone is capable of catching and spreading Monkeypox. Check out the CDC’s website to find up-to-date information to keep you and your family safe.  

Below is a list of vaccine clinics from around the state who offer the JYNNEOS Mpox Vaccine. You must call to schedule an appointment
