Protect Yourself and Others

Data suggest that gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men make up most cases in the current mpox outbreak. However, anyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, who has been in close, personal contact with someone who has mpox is at risk.

Follow prevention steps and get vaccinated if you were exposed to mpox or are at higher risk of being exposed to mpox to help protect you and your community.
