More people in Riverside County will be able to receive the monkeypox vaccine now that the county’s public health department has expanded eligibility criteria.

The county’s vaccine eligibility now includes “gay, same-gender loving or bisexual men, or any men, gender diverse or transgender people who have sex (including chemsex) with men or transgender people,” said Riverside County Deputy Public Health Officer Dr. Jennifer Chevinsky.

This broadens eligibility “quite significantly,” she added, which previously was limited to those who were exposed to the virus, engage in sex work, have had a bacterial sexually transmitted infection in the past three months or whose work puts them at higher risk of infection.

“It’s no longer having to attest to certain behaviors, such as whether they’re partaking in group sex or anonymous sex,” Chevinsky said. “It gives the ability for people within that group to assess their risks, talk to their health care providers about their risk and get vaccinated.”
