The Orange County Department of Health is making more monkeypox vaccine appointments available Thursday starting at 8:30 am. 


The online appointment system will remain open until 5 pm. 

People who have come in contact with a positive case, healthcare workers who test for monkeypox or run direct response teams, and men who have sex with men are eligible.

The viral infection is spread by direct contact with sores or linens or clothing that has touched sores. 

Symptoms include a high fever, chills and exhaustion along with a distinctive rash that starts on the face and hands spreads to other parts of the body.
