Hundreds of People Gather to get Monkeypox vaccine in New York City

In order to stop the spread of Monkeypox after the city’s case count reached 30, health authorities in New York City introduced a new immunisation campaign on Thursday. Patrick Kot was one of hundreds who waited in line outside the Chelsea Sexual Health Clinic for up to two hours to receive a Monkeypox vaccination. He told CBS2’s Nick Caloway, “I’m feeling a lot better than I was, say, three hours ago.

Kot is feeling a little better after getting shot in the arm. The clinic was set up for anyone who could have recently been exposed to the virus, but capacity was rapidly reached and walk-ins had to be stopped by local health officials. Kot expressed his happiness with the large attendance. It’s undoubtedly difficult and frustrating for everyone because there is a wait, but he said, “I feel a lot safer going out, meeting new people, whatever it is.

Carlos Maldonado expressed his gratitude for the homosexual community’s serious approach to the issue ahead of the city’s annual Pride weekend. So, he said, “It’s one of the spots that will be crowded with visitors from all over the world.” “Many gay guys in New York, probably more so than our straight counterparts, have been keeping an eye on it, in my opinion. There was a feeling that if we didn’t get the vaccine now, especially after we’re going to see so many friends this weekend at Pride, that we would eventually get Monkeypox.

I believe that many of us had heard stories, or perhaps a friend of a friend had the disease “CBS2 was informed by another individual waiting for the shot. Although anybody may have Monkeypox, according to city health experts, instances are currently mostly expanding among homosexual, bisexual, and other males who have sex with men’s social networks.
