How many monkeypox vaccines does Baltimore have? As cases rise, advocates want more transparency.

July 26, 2022

A group of public health academics is urging Baltimore leaders to speak up and act quickly to curb the rise of monkeypox, warning that the virus already is disproportionately harming the city’s LGBTQ community. Anyone can get monkeypox, an infectious disease that causes painful lesions, fever, chills, swollen lymph nodes and more. It is painful and can require multiple weeks of quarantine and isolation, but is rarely fatal. Monkeypox spreads through direct or close contact with an infected person and so far in the U.S. has been affecting predominantly men who have sex with other men.
