The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) is happy to inform you that the Monkeypox Treatment webpage for healthcare providers is now LIVE, and can be accessed here. This website provides information regarding the currently available treatment, Tecovirimat (TPOXX), and includes CDC guidance and requirements for patient eligibility, precautions to consider, and how to request TPOXX for your patient(s).
TPOXX is only available through the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) and VDH has decided to preposition Virginia’s allocation in local health departments, hospitals, and health systems.
VDH will also be prioritizing requests for TPOXX from Infectious Disease specialists in Virginia. To request TPOXX, providers may complete VDH’s TPOXX Treatment Initiation Interest Form. VDH has a small stock available for deployment upon request and has the ability to order more at any time through the SNS. VDH also has the ability to request direct shipment from the SNS to the clinician, if needed.
We thank you for your continued support as VDH works toward its goal of providing equitable access to treatment.
