If you think you may have been exposed to monkeypox or have symptoms of monkeypox, please contact your primary care physician for diagnosis and treatment.
As we continue to provide crucial services to support the health and well-being of our community, our first responsibility is to maintain a safe environment for our patients and employees. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is tracking an outbreak of monkeypox that is occurring across the United States and several other countries that don’t normally report it. The monkeypox virus spreads mostly through close, intimate contact with someone who has monkeypox. Common symptoms include fever, headache, muscle aches, back pain, low energy, swollen lymph nodes and the development of a rash that can be found on the face, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and genital regions of the body. If you have any symptoms of monkeypox, contact your primary care provider first for diagnosis and treatment. For detailed information about monkeypox, visit cdc.gov/monkeypox.
The CDC recommends vaccination for people who have been exposed to monkeypox and people who may be more likely to get monkeypox. Click here for more information about the vaccine or use the resources below for information on where to go to get vaccinated.
