In response to a shortage of monkeypox vaccines in the United States, the Biden administration will make 144,000 additional doses available.

According to a New York health official, all monkeypox vaccination appointments at the Chelsea clinic have been filled.

“A sincere apology for the technical difficulties our vendor [Medrite] experienced with today’s monkeypox vaccine appointment rollout. We pledge to do better in the days and weeks ahead,” said New York Health Commissioner Ashwin Vasan on Twitter Thursday.

In New York, there were 199 cases as of Wednesday, around 20 percent of the national total. Gay men have disproportionately been affected by the disease.
