How do you treat mpox?

If you have mpox, you know that you're in the clear when your lesions have healed and the scabs have fallen off. That's the best way.

Rather than giving a timeframe, it's more important to say, even the scabs could potentially transmit the virus, so you want to be completely healed and then your risk of transmission goes away.

Mpox vaccines are available!

Get protected against mpox. Vaccination is available at no cost at many locations. Your local health department can tell you more about options in your community. Find a vaccine near you.
