These at-risk populations have been identified based on Ontario Ministry of Health guidelines.

The health unit is following federal and provincial guidance on the administration of Imvamune vaccines to protect those most at risk of contracting the monkeypox virus. For more information about the vaccine, please see the Monkeypox Vaccine Information Sheet.
