It's been a thing for like eight weeks, only 300 cases reported in the U.S. No deaths. And yet, "they" already have something to inject into you.
I'm not an anti-vaxx'r, but c'mon. We are on year 40 (!!) of HIV, and we got nothin'. Substantially more cases and deaths. And a fuck of a lot more time to develop something. ANYTHING.
As you might expect, it's a two-shot thing. So.......yay.
Most of use are not eligible.
The vaccine will now be given to people with confirmed and presumed monkeypox exposure. That includes "those who had close physical contact with someone diagnosed with monkeypox, those who know their sexual partner was diagnosed with monkeypox, and men who have sex with men who have recently had multiple sex partners in a venue where there was known to be monkeypox or in an area where monkeypox is spreading,"
Let's do the math - shall we?
300 known U.S. cases. 300,000 doses. And the parameters. Even at two does per person, are there 150,000 folks to whom they could even give this? Yeah yeah yeah - I get it: "...... and men who have sex with men who have recently had multiple sex partners in a venue where there was known to be monkeypox".
I don't know this place / these places. And that would be a LOT of 'multiple partners'...............I've heard.
As it turns out - currently, I don't qualify. Right??: I know! But as you can see by my pic, I at least stand in support of those who do.
