This publication contains information on the number of smallpox (Modified Vaccinia Ankara (MVA)) vaccines that have been administered via sexual health services in England to people at highest risk of mpox infection and a small number of contacts of mpox. It includes data at both national and regional level.
These estimates are designated as experimental statistics while they are still in development and should be interpreted with some caution. Data is collected via voluntary aggregate data submissions from sexual health or genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics. As this is a relatively new data collection, some variation may be due to incomplete data submissions and other data quality issues. We are working with all clinics to improve data quality. These figures are published to ensure timely reporting of the most up-to-date operational statistics so there may be a slight undercount as more vaccinations are reported in the coming days for the most recent period reported.
Data is updated weekly at 2pm on Thursdays.
Weekly MVA Vaccinations
Until 10 November 2022, data was extracted on Thursday each week and included vaccinations reported by 10am of the publication date. From 17 November 2022, data is extracted on Wednesday and includes vaccinations reported by 10am of the day prior to the publication date.
