It is important to stay informed about monkeypox and learn about the symptoms, how it spreads, and what to do if you are exposed. Monkeypox spreads through close, physical contact between people. This means anyone can get monkeypox. However, based on the current outbreak, certain populations are being affected by monkeypox more than others, including men who have sex with men (MSM).


The first case of monkeypox in Onondaga County was announced on August 10, 2022. See a summary of cases in New York State here.


The Onondaga County Health Department will announce upcoming monkeypox vaccine clinics as they are planned. Vaccine supply from the federal government is currently limited, and eligibility is expected to expand as supply increases. See the current status of monkeypox in New York State here.
