I’m so glad someone asked me this question. I’ve been wanting to talk about this. Especially, as we approach summer fun time, it’s a really good time to do a quick, you know…kick the tires, check the oil, and on that list should be an mpox vaccine.

So, if you haven’t gotten your mpox vaccine, make sure you run and get it. Remember two doses of mpox vaccine, we want to get that force field up all the way to level ten, no halfway protection.

If you haven’t gotten your second dose, it’s never too late. You don’t have to restart, you don’t go back to first dose and start it again.

If we get on top of it, we are going to not only protect our health, we’re also going to protect our summer fun.
