D.C. Officials Urge Residents to Pre-Register for Monkeypox Vaccines Vaccines are being administered at two official sites in the city from Sunday to Friday from 1-8 p.m.Nesbitt and Bowser also noted that some select doses of vaccine have been allocated to community partner organizations, especially LGBTQ-friendly organizations like Whitman-Walker Health and Us Helping Us, so they can hold “pop-up” clinics and offer another option for higher-risk populations, including LGBTQ individuals of color, to get vaccinated.Nesbitt said the city expects to receive approximately 4,000 additional doses of vaccine from the federal government in the coming weeks, and pre-registering will help public health officials understand the level of demand for the vaccine so they can request more if needed.“This isn’t a process where we can ask for 50,000 doses and receive 50,000 doses,” Nesbitt said, noting that the CDC is using an allocation formula based on the number of cases in a particular jurisdiction, meaning the District has had to rely on health providers and laboratories quickly testing and identifying suspected cases of monkeypox-related infection in order to approach the CDC and request more doses to meet demand.However, Nesbitt also noted that additional doses that the city do not constitute a full preventative regimen, since the JYNNEOS vaccine must be administered in two separate shots, spaced one month apart.According to the CDC, full immunity from the vaccine only occurs two weeks after an individual receives their second dose.
