Rockland’s Health Department has scheduled a monkeypox vaccine clinic in Pomona. The clinic will take place at the Robert Yeager Health Center Building A on Thursday, October 20th from 4-7pm. To be eligible you’ll need to meet one or more of several New York State requirements, including exposure to a suspected or confirmed monkeypox case within the past two weeks. There are other situations as well, and you can find that list on the health department’s website. Symptoms of monkeypox usually include a rash, fever, chills, swollen lymph nodes, very bad headaches, muscle aches, back pain, and low energy. The rash usually begins within one to three days of the start of a fever. For assistance making a Monkeypox vaccine appointment, call 845-238-1956 or send an email with your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
