I have no intentions on taking anymore vaccines or treatments. Had a discussion with my primary last week. I'm still wearing my mask and using precautions. My life is precious to me. Thank you to all the people who do the clinical trials. I appreciate you 😊

That just reminded me to email my doctor's office and ask them what they think. I am supposed to see him in September. Hey, one day we were doing our thing and the next the world was shut down - I ain't takin' any chances at this point.

Here in the UK I follow the UK news very closely and there's been no word at all about general vaccination of the population, or even affected groups, re. monkeypox. I did read this morning, however, that one gay UK politician has accused the government of not taking action because, he asserted, the government perceives monkeypox as only affecting MSM, which is not entirely true. I think it may be possible that UK Sexual Health clinics are offering the vaccine to patients who may be susceptible. My local Sexual Health clinic, who give me my HIV care, has not however offered it to me, but that may be because they know that I am in a monogamous relationship. But if my local doctor were to start offering it to every patient in my area I would line up for it - just to be as safe as possible.

I got some information about who is (eligible) for the monkey pox vaccine at the LA LGBT Center.They are starting off with anyone who has has had an STI in the past 3 month and for anyone on PREP. They said they will get to the rest of us after that.
