Funny how you keep citing the CDC as if it still has credibility.
There has been a honest to goodness real vaccine for monkeypox. Most U.S. Citizens have been vaccinated for this. Surely it could not have came across our border.
>Most U.S. Citizens have been vaccinated for this
The US stopped routine administration of the smallpox vaccination in 1972, and the vaccine is only useful for between 3-5 years.
So, no. Most US citizens are not protected against monkeypox.
Edited: better source
Edited again: Yes, monkeypox and smallpox are different viruses, but the vaccine covers both. [https://www.cdc.gov/poxvirus/monkeypox/clinicians/smallpox-vaccine.html](https://www.cdc.gov/poxvirus/monkeypox/clinicians/smallpox-vaccine.html)
While you were doing your research did you actually read why it is no longer necessary in American Citizens? I was vaccinated for it, my children would have been fourth generation and the vaccine was no longer required because it had been genetically eradicated. Back to probably did not come across border our border.
>Back to probably came across to border
It did, in fact, come across the border...but probably not the one you're thinking. From Montreal, where, as of Thursday, there were 17 suspected cases reported.
As for my "research," as you put it, I don't consider a few Google searches that difficult, but it's better than claiming the majority of Americans are vaccinated. The vaccine is only useful for 3-5 years - your immunity is long-gone if you were vaccinated "back in the day." There are very few people - mostly researchers - who would have current immunity to smallpox or monkeypox.
Hope that helps.
The virus is specifically spread by touching voting machines in person.
This will be a talking point just you watch!!
Suckers. All the have to do now is infect three people and sell billions to the fed
Lmao, of course it had to be my state
Ditto. They already went nuts with the COVID vaccine, can't wait to see how this goes is assholechusetts
Its okay. My state has so many homeless down south (in the "caring" democrat run areas) that there was an outbreak of the fucking bubonic plague a few years ago.
Anybody who got the small pox vaccine (stopped in 1973) may have some protection.
Protection only lasts for 3-5 years, so no, they definitely do not.
Are you referring to this:
> Persons exposed to monkeypox virus and who have not received the smallpox vaccine within the last 3 years, should consider getting vaccinated.
I’d want to understand how this 3 or 3-5 year number was deduced before assigning such a high level of confidence here.
>Vaccination 40 years ago, even if not currently protective against smallpox disease, may offer some protection against a fatal outcome. A study of smallpox cases imported into nonendemic countries found that mortality was 52 percent among the unvaccinated, 11 percent among those vaccinated more than 20 years earlier and 1.4 percent of those vaccinated within 10 years. Therefore, vaccination 40 years ago most likely does not confer protection against smallpox infection, but it may help to prevent a fatal outcome. Should you be exposed to smallpox in the future, you should definitely be revaccinated because vaccination after exposure to an infected smallpox patient, even four days later, can prevent smallpox disease.
So, in short: if you're exposed to this - which almost no one will be, but - *get the vaccine*. A shot is better than a 1-in-10 chance of dying.
Smallpox is going to “accidentally” get released right before the midterms. The V for Vendetta scenario is their instruction manual.
Please don't come to my state, that sounds like the scariest thing ever
That picture of the man's hands looks like it was horribly itchy.
