The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued a statement advising men who have sex with men (MSM) to get vaccinated against monkeypox in preparation for upcoming gay pride events. The organization is concerned about the potential spread of the disease during the spring and summer months, which could lead to a worldwide outbreak.
The WHO is urging those at higher risk of contracting the disease to be vigilant, get tested for symptoms, and abstain from sex if they develop symptoms. They are also encouraging individuals to get the monkeypox vaccine if possible. The disease was previously thought to be contracted through direct contact with infected animals, but last year researchers discovered it was also spread through human-to-human contact via seminal fluids and anal sex.
The WHO has partnered with the UK non-profit Love Tank to launch a “Ready for it” awareness campaign. The campaign encourages festival-goers to get vaccinated with the slogan “Tix. Keys. Phone. Vax” if they will be engaging in gay sex. The Love Tank vaccine coordinator Qaisar Siddiqui believes that this message is motivating people to be proactive about getting their vaccines and protecting their sexual health.
It is noteworthy that the WHO is recommending pharmaceutical medication rather than advising people to avoid the festivals or abstain from gay sex altogether. However, it is important to prioritize public health and take necessary precautions to prevent the spread of disease.
