Monkeypox Vaccine Interest Form

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and Central Virginia Health District are responding to an outbreak of monkeypox in countries that do not normally see cases of monkeypox, such as the United States.  For information on monkeypox in Virginia, please visit the VDH monkeypox website.  If you are a healthcare provider, please visit the monkeypox website for healthcare providers.

The Central Virginia Health District is working to ensure that residents who have been exposed to or are at high risk of being exposed to monkeypox receive a vaccination.  If you are interested in receiving a monkeypox vaccination, please complete the interest form linked above or call us at (434)-477-5974.
