Long Beach: Expanding Access to Monkeypox (MPX) Vaccines
The Californer/10207524

Release Date: 2022-08-31

Starting today, eligible Long Beach residents can get vaccinated against monkeypox (MPX) at our Long Beach City College clinic without an appointment. Over the past weeks, we've worked to expand eligibility and access to vaccines to protect residents and our community — especially LGBTQ+ people and others at high risk. Addressing the spread of MPX continues to be a top priority and I want to encourage everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated.

Vaccines are available through our Health Department — with or without an appointment — at our LBCC Pacific Coast Campus clinic on the corner of Orange Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway:
  1. Tuesdays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m.
  2. Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Our Health Department still recommends that eligible people make an appointment, but it's not mandatory. Due to limited vaccine supply, non-appointments are offered on a first-come, first-served basis while supply lasts. You can make an appointment: here.

Thank you and stay safe,
