California Northstate University College of Pharmacy will offer a Monkeypox vaccination clinic with Pucci’s Pharmacy on Thursday, September 1st from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Mack Road Partnership in Sacramento.
Monkeypox is a rare disease caused by infection with the monkeypox virus. Monkeypox virus is part of the same family of viruses as variola virus, the virus that causes smallpox. Monkeypox symptoms are similar to smallpox symptoms, but milder, and monkeypox is rarely fatal.
“We are proud to be able to protect individuals against Monkeypox through these vaccination clinics,” said Dr. Xiaodong Feng, Dean of California Northstate University College of Pharmacy. “On August 13th, in partnership with Pucci’s Pharmacy, our volunteer students and faculty members administered over 300 doses of Jynneos Monkeypox vaccine at the Sacramento LGBT Community Center. We look forward to helping even more members of the community stay safe through this week’s vaccination clinic.”
You must be at least 18 years old to receive the Monkeypox vaccine. For pre-registration, click HERE. Walk-ins are also welcome while supplies last.
