Monkeypox Vaccination Appointment System

The JYNNEOS Vaccine is a two-dose series with the second dose of vaccine being given 28 (4 weeks) days after the first dose.

If you have not received your second dose of the JYNNEOS vaccine, visit the DOH-Orange website to schedule appointment at: https://orange.floridahealth.gov/index.html. Vaccinations are by appointment only, no walk-ins.

DOH-Orange’s Monkeypox Vaccination Appointment system opens at 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, but not on holidays.


Anyone can get monkeypox, but men who have sex with men remain at the highest risk. Transmission of monkeypox generally requires prolonged, face-to-face contact, direct contact with an active rash, or indirect contact with an active rash through contaminated items, such as contaminated clothing.

If you are currently experiencing symptoms of Monkeypox, we encourage you to contact your healthcare provider.

Symptoms of Monkeypox include:

fever, headache, muscle aches and backaches, swollen lymph nodes, chills, a rash that can look like pimples or blisters that appear on the face, inside the mouth, and on other parts of the body like the hands, feet, chest, genital and anal area.
