Anyone can get Monkeypox. It can be transmitted through close personal contact with someone who has the infection, such as during sex. Currently, most of the cases across Europe and the UK have been in gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM). Vaccinations are being offered to GBMSM for this reason.

 

‚ÄčIf you are GBMSM living in D&G and have not received a text message from us regarding the vaccine, and you believe you may be eligible for it, please email or phone us to arrange an appointment:
