High-risk Coloradans have another chance to get monkeypox vaccine



Colorado will host three more monkeypox vaccination clinics next week focused on high-risk men who have sex with men.

The vaccines are available to adult gay and bisexual men who had multiple partners or an anonymous partner in the last two weeks. Qualifying people can fill out a form online to request an appointment at clinics scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and July 16.

Monkeypox causes flu-like symptoms and a rash, which could be mistaken for pimples or common sexually transmitted infections. Most people infected in the current outbreak have developed lesions in the genital area, but they can appear elsewhere on the body.
