Pride month is here and Mpox remains a threat


Romans 1:28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

Important Takeaways:

  • As the LGBTQ+ community gears up for Pride celebrations this month, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging more people – particularly some gay and bisexual men – to get the Mpox vaccine.
  • The US Department of Health and Human Services plans to be at dozens of Pride and community events across the country to remind people that Mpox is still a problem in the United States
  • According to recent case reports, 90% of those who got Mpox in the US during this outbreak who reported their sexual orientation were men who identified as gay or bisexual.
  • Health organizations will want to emphasize that mpox vaccines provide not only protection but real peace of mind.
  • “You don’t have to be worried about being in contact with people if you’ve been vaccinated,” Hujdich said, “So it gives you the freedom to enjoy and be proud during Pride.”
