Mpox Vaccination Update

by Portia Jackson | Jul 31, 2023

A sustained reduction in mpox (monkeypox) case numbers across England, and the success of vaccination in helping to control the outbreak, mean that the national vaccination programme is no longer needed as an outbreak control measure and, in accordance with UKHSA guidance, it has now been wound down.

After the end of July, people who are regularly travelling to London, or abroad, to have sex and who are eligible for the vaccine can book a London-based appointment using the online national mpox vaccination site finder.
