Monkeypox

Monkeypox is a viral disease that can spread through close contact between people and through respiratory droplets (for example when people sneeze or cough). Learn more about symptoms, vaccination and who is at higher risk. 

Public Health is collaborating with other regional health officials to monitor the situation.

Vaccination is available in Quebec to certain people who are considered especially at risk of being exposed to monkeypox. Vaccination will be available soon to eligible people on territory in Eeyou Istchee at the CMCs.
