Mpox Vaccines Available

Drexel Medicine, along with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, is now offering vaccinations for mpox (formerly called monkeypox)* for people at high risk of getting the illness. Vaccinations will be available at all of our offices and at sites around Philadelphia. We are working with Sunray Pharmacy and other Drexel health programs to get the vaccine to anyone who needs it.

Currently, the mpox vaccine is available to people who are at the most risk of getting mpox. More information about the mpox vaccine can be found on the CDC website.

*In November 2022, the World Health Organization began using the term mpox instead of monkeypox due to reports of racist and stigmatizing language appearing online and elsewhere.

About the Department of Public Health Grant

Last fall, the Drexel Medicine clinical practices received a $50,000 grant from the Philadelphia Department of Public Health to expand mpox vaccination and related outreach for people at high risk for mpox. Outreach will particularly focus on communities that have been disproportionately affected by the 2022 mpox outbreak. The Partnership Comprehensive Care Practice has been providing vaccines to eligible patients since August 2022.

The program will promote equitable access to vaccines, as well as ensure that accurate and timely information is available to people at high risk for mpox, particularly those who may be difficult to reach through traditional means and social media.

The goals include:

  • Offering mpox vaccination in Philadelphia communities most impacted by mpox and where vaccination rates are anticipated to be low.
  • Providing education to the community about mpox, including transmission, prevention and vaccination.
  • Combining mpox vaccination with other community engagement and outreach initiatives (such as health screenings and education events) to further connect with those who may not otherwise engage with health resources.
