Monkeypox is making the rounds among a certain segment of the population, and the CDC has instructions for what those most at risk should do about it.
There aren’t a lot of reliable treatment options for the nasty rash Monkeypox can give you, but there are a few ways to reduce your risk of getting it.
Medical authorities in D.C. (the highest per-capita outbreak in the country) are suggesting vaccines.
The District has reported 122 cases of monkeypox since May; no one has died.
“Anyone who comes into contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with monkeypox, we want to quickly get them vaccinated. It’s important that we try to identify those people who have been in contact with someone who’s had monkeypox within four days and to get them vaccinated within 14 days,” said DC Health’s director, Dr. LaQuandra S. Nesbitt, during a Monday news briefing.
While anyone can get monkeypox, 96% of D.C.’s cases are in men; 82% identify as gay. The majority of cases are in people 30 to 34 years old. — WTOP
Vaccines? Ok, fine. But how about NOT having anonymous sex with strangers?
Have our ‘medical experts’ tried that approach yet?
I’m old enough to remember when Fauci told us that having Thanksgiving dinner with Granny would kill her dead, but bumping uglies with someone you just met on a hook-up app would be A-Ok.
The vaccine, being similar to the smallpox vaccine is not something we have in massive supply at the moment. So it’s only being offered to high-risk people for now. Here’s the list of who can get it in DC.
Those eligible to receive the monkeypox vaccine are D.C. residents who are at least 18 years old and who are:
Gay or bisexual males who have sex with men and have had any anonymous sexual partners in the last 14 days.
Transgender women or nonbinary persons assigned male at birth who have sex with men.
Sex workers (of any sexual orientation/gender).
Staff (of any sexual orientation/gender) at establishments where sexual activity occurs (e.g., bathhouses, saunas, sex clubs). — WTOP

Beginning in March 2020, many Christians went into lockdown-freak-out mode. Uncut, irrational, unbiblical, and not to mention, unconstitutional, fear gripped many churches and church leaders. Forced to choose between obeying the Word of God or the edict of man, most Western Churches buckled. We even saw it here in First Amendment-protected America.
The Apostle Peter buckled to fear on the night of Christ’s crucifixion. But he learned his lesson and lived the rest of his life bold as a lion. How can the church ‘go and do likewise’?
