Monkeypox

Monkeypox

Has anyone asked their doctor about monkeypox yet?
I just sent an email to my doctor to see if there was any kind of vaccine for it. From what I have read so far, it does not look like there is, but the smallpox vaccine is 80% effective against it. 80% is better than 0%.
Would you get a monkeypox or smallpox vaccine to try and prevent monkeypox?

80% efficacy is very good for a vaccine. I had the smallpox vaccine in 1967 but my immunity has since faded away according to the cdc website. I can't get vaccinated again because of a life… read more

Has Anyone Noticed That NONE Of The Covid Vaccines Are FDA Approved?

Has Anyone Noticed That NONE Of The Covid Vaccines Are FDA Approved?

I was just researching covid vaccines. NONE of them are FDA approved. Instead they are EUA, emergency use authorization. The issuance of an EUA is different than an FDA approval (licensure) of a vaccine.

Is The Monkeypox Vaccine Safe For People With HIV?

Is The Monkeypox Vaccine Safe For People With HIV?

It is my understanding that the Monkeypox vaccine is made with a live virus. When the early Shingles vaccine came out, my doctor told me not to take it because it was made with a live virus. Once the Shingles vaccine was updated and didn’t use a live virus, he then advised that I take it.

When Will There Be A Vaccine For HIV/AIDS, When Co-vid Had Three In One Year?

When Will There Be A Vaccine For HIV/AIDS, When Co-vid Had Three In One Year?

It is a miracle and blessing we have vaccines for Co-vid released just this year. My question as a long termer diagnosed with HIV in 1987, why has it taken, in my case, 34 years for such a vaccine be developed for HIV/AIDS? The Pharmaceutical companies have made billions since manufacturing meds for HIV/AIDS. Why would these companies want to put out a vaccine or cure over making billions of dollars? And why are there not more generics for HIV meds? It all kind of makes one wonder… read more
