In early June, the first case of monkeypox (now known as mpox) was identified in San Francisco, and as of October 12, 2022, a total of 824 cases
have been identified in SF. There has been a notable decline in mpox case counts over the past month, mirroring state and national trends. Declines in cases are likely attributed to SF’s efforts to prioritize equitable vaccine distribution and make vaccine available to anyone at risk for mpox, with > 27,000 doses administered
. Check out the new SF mpox dashboard
, which shows new and cumulative cases, case demographics, and vaccine data.
