MPOX (Monkeypox) Vaccination Clinic

Nov 24 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm MST

MPOX (Monkeypox) Vaccination Clinic

MPOX (Monkeypox) Vaccination Clinic

In partnership with the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Yukon Government, Queer Yukon is hosting an Mpox (monkeypox) vaccination clinic for those in the community who are at higher risk of infection.

​There are two options for receiving a vaccine:

  1. Filling out the registration form at the link below. You will be able to select a time slot for when you will receive your vaccine and move through the process a little faster. We suggest everyone register as this will give us an understanding of how many doses we will need to prepare in advance. 
  2. Drop-In: You may come at anytime between 3:00pm and 6:00pm. We cannot guarantee a dose will be available or estimate how long you may be waiting. 

Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a Queer Yukon staff member who will ask you if you are here as a drop-in or confirm your registration. They will then see you to the nurse or show you to the waiting area.

After you have received the vaccine please follow the signs to the exit. A staff member can help guide you. 

Please be aware of the following:

  • You must be over 18 years of age to receive the vaccine at this time. 
  • This vaccine is approved if you are pregnant. We will not be enquiring about this.
  • ​The nurses providing the vaccine will ask you if you meet the Yukon Government’s risk factors. They will NOT be asking you to identify which risk factor you meet, they just need to confirm that you meet one of them, this can be a simple verbal acknowledgment.
  • You will need to provide:
    • name (this is to access your health records and only needs to be shared with the nurse administering the vaccine)​;
    • date of birth, and
    • A health care number (YHCIP #). You will not be turned away if you do not have one.
      • If the nurse cannot verify your immunization history they will require you to provide consent prior to receiving the vaccine.
  • You may experience more severe side effects if you are receiving this vaccine within 14 days of another vaccination (covid, flu, etc.).
    • Receiving the vaccine within the 14-day window of another vaccine for Pre Exposure Prophylaxis. You may experience more severe side effects. There is currently no data available at this time on this. 
    • You may consent to receiving the vaccine regardless though this decision will need to be documented by the nurse administering your vaccination.
    • Please advise the nurse administering your vaccine if you have any concerns.
