Story in the local news this morning about monkeypox vaccine. The county health department serves the region as well in some areas, including this vaxx. They have 140 vaccines, and have requested 500 more. Since it is a two dose, that will be 320 people. Only people exposed or living in high risk situations qualify to apply for the vax, and the state has to approve if that person can receive it. Health officials say we don’t have enough vaccine.
Words fail me. The CDC wonders why people don’t follow their guidance? People no longer trust them, for damn good reason. Yes, some of that distrust is rooted ignorance but I’ve seen plenty since December to convince me the agency is 100% political. Public health will take a back city.
