Maryland expands eligibility requirements for monkeypox vaccine

September 27, 2022

Anyone who has had multiple or unknown sexual partners within two weeks can now get the monkeypox vaccine after the Maryland Department of Health expanded eligibility requirements for the two-shot series. The criteria, which the state health department updated last week, also now include people who are aware that one or more of their sexual partners from the past two weeks has been exposed to the virus. That includes those who are considered to be at a higher risk for being exposed to the virus — gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, and people who are immunocompromised.
