WAUWATOSA, Wis. – The Findley Medical Clinic has received federal approval to provide
vaccinations to protect patients from monkeypox.

The clinic has a supply of the JYNNEOS vaccine, which is the federally preferred vaccine for the current outbreak of monkeypox.

The Department of Health Services (DHS) is currently following the federal recommendation to prioritize the JYNNEOS vaccine for people at the highest risk of infection.

In Wisconsin, JYNNEOS is currently available for the following patients:
 People who have had close contact with others who have contracted the disease.
 People with certain risk factors who are more likely to have been recently exposed to
monkeypox, even if they have not had documented exposure to someone with confirmed monkeypox.

According to the Milwaukee Health Department, there were 33 confirmed cases of monkeypox virus in the city as of Oct. 10.

Monkeypox can spread to anyone through close, personal, often skin-to-skin contact including:
 Direct contact with monkeypox rash, scabs or body fluids from a person with monkeypox. Federal officials believe this is currently the most common way that monkeypox is spreading in the U.S.
 Touching objects, fabrics (clothing, bedding, or towels), and surfaces that have been
used by someone with monkeypox.
 Contact with respiratory secretions. This contact can happen during intimate contact, including:
 Oral, anal and vaginal sex or touching the genitals (penis, testicles, labia and vagina)
or anus of a person with monkeypox.
 Hugging, massage and kissing.
 Prolonged face-to-face contact.
 Touching fabrics and objects during sex that were used by a person with monkeypox
and that have not been disinfected, such as bedding, towels, fetish gear and sex toys.
