Triple pozzed HIV Covid Monkrypox

Have you traveled to a gay community? If not, nothing to worry about. There are a small number of cases and no evidence of community spread. Really nothing to worry about so long as we all wash up.

If a straight man gets this, his friends are all going to think he's secretly gay
they'd be pretty accurate in thinking so

btw I realize it's taboo to target a sexual orientation, so I'll just stop here. I'm mostly just joking, but this is objectively "the new AIDS" due to the way it spreads. I'm hoping we can stomp it out quickly before it DOES end up causing a public backlash against the gay community. @Remy Bressant called it in that this is perfect fear porn fuel for conservatives.

ACAM2000’s best feature right now is its availability: 100 million-odd doses of the vaccine are currently sitting on the shelves at the US Strategic National Stockpile, largely untouched.

But it comes with a long list of contingencies, among them its unwieldy administration. Although vaccinators give most routine immunizations using a simple in-and-out injection technique, ACAM2000 is inoculated into the skin with a two-pronged needle through a series of tiny jabs at the skin — enough to draw a droplet of blood. “You have to train people how to do it,” said Carlos del Rio, an infectious disease specialist at Emory University in Atlanta. “It is not a simple procedure.”

Also, immunizers can’t just assume ACAM2000 has worked in a person who’s received it: They need to check for proof — and that proof comes in the form of a single, kind of gnarly pustule that shows up at the inoculation site about a week after getting immunized. In a small percentage of people, the vaccine doesn’t “take” on the first try, and they require another shot.

There are also major limitations on who can safely receive ACAM2000. The vaccine contains live, weakened vaccinia virus — a relative of smallpox and monkeypox that’s not harmful to healthy people but can cause serious illness in people who are severely immunocompromised (including people with advanced or untreated HIV), pregnant people, people with eczema, and infants. That means people in these categories should not receive ACAM2000.

Furthermore, because people who get ACAM2000 shed live vaccinia virus from their inoculation-site pustule until it crusts over (usually about two weeks after vaccination), they have to keep the site carefully covered to avoid infecting someone in one of these risk groups. That means vaccinators should ask recipients about their high-risk close contacts, including pregnant people and those living with eczema or in immunocompromised states, said Amesh Adalja, a health security and emerging infectious diseases expert at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

95% sexually transmitted?
Before you go full @phelix on this, can we talk about the state of CA declaring a public health emergency as they've apparently pointed out that gyms are a significant hotspot for transmission via sweat / skin to surface to skin transmission?

Basically it's the 'lingering on surfaces' all over again.
And combined with the need for a MONTH of isolation, and given our societies laughable response to public health concerns...

Some people are about to shook AF when Chad and Becky get Monkeypox during rush week. Not to mention the peach tree dish we call grade school.

I certainly don't believe that you are, but that is definitely the stand that you're threatening to make in here.

Can't just look at yesterday's data, gotta look at the whole picture.
