Monkeypox (MPOX) Vaccination Centre

Since May 2022 an international outbreak of monkeypox (MPOX) among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM) has been reported. Skin-to-skin contact (including sexual contact) has been the predominant mode of transmission in this outbreak. Most people experience a mild illness and recover within a few weeks.  

In response, NSW Health has worked with the Commonwealth and other jurisdictions to identify cases and and contain further spread through comprehensive surveillance and vaccination programs.  

The MPOX Vaccination Centre is located at:

Sacred Heart Health Service, Level 2 North, room 235
170 Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst NSW 2010

Operating Monday to Friday, 08:30am - 04:00pm
