Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) received the initial allocation of more than 200 doses of vaccine for monkeypox virus infection on July 21, with additional doses expected to be delivered soon.

To help prevent illness from the virus, ADPH will offer vaccine and monitor for early signs of illness in eligible persons. Due to the limited supply of vaccine at this time, post-exposure prophylaxis will be made available only to those who are known to have been exposed within the previous 14 days to a person with monkeypox, or to a person attending an event at a venue where monkeypox virus was known to have been transmitted.
