Governor Kathy Hochul announced that New York State received almost 9,000 doses of a monkeypox vaccine. The New York State Department of Health was allocated 8,822 doses of the JYNNEOS vaccine from the federal government. Additionally, New York City will get an extra 23,963 doses directly from the federal government.

As of July 20, 2022, there are a total of 756 confirmed monkeypox cases in New York State

Governor Hochul said she is thankful for the vaccine since New York has the most cases in the United States,

New York continues to face a disproportionate number of monkeypox cases. I want to thank President Biden, Dr. Jha and other Administration officials for their partnership to secure additional vaccines for our state. While the national supply remains limited, we will continue our efforts to confront this outbreak with the urgency needed to ensure that New York receives its fair share of vaccines and protect our most vulnerable communities.

Here's How New York Plans To Distribute The Monkeypox Vaccine Around The State

New York State Department of Health allocated 2,000 doses to New York City since that's where most cases in the state are currently concentrated. The remaining 6,822 doses will be spread around the state to counties based on how many cases of monkeypox they have, how close they are to NYC, and their ability to distribute the vaccine to those who are eligible. The vaccine is administered in two doses. New York expects to receive more doses in the coming weeks and months.
