Monkeypox update

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the monkeypox outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. The decision was announced in June after the WHO convened its second emergency committee.

Monkeypox is transmitted by very close contact with other people-skin to skin touching and close breathing. So to prevent it, avoid close contact and wear a mask. Abstain from high risk sexual behaviors, the most common cause of transmission.

Vaccine can be given for high risk exposures but is very limited in availability.

Symptoms of monkeypox can include:
• A rash that can look like pimples or blisters that appears on the face, inside the mouth, and on other parts of the body, like the hands, feet, chest, genitals, or anus.
• Fever
• Headache
• Muscle aches and backache
• Swollen lymph nodes
• Chills
• Exhaustion

Please schedule an appointment to speak with your provider if there is concern about a legitimate exposure to determine next steps.
