Monkey pox — are smallpox vaccinations from decades ago protective?


I am curious. Are those adults, largely males, that are contracting MPX individuals that have never recieved a SmPox vaccination?


It appears to be very painful for those who contract it. I read where individuals can be infectious for five days before they develope any symptoms. Perhaps that is contributing to its spread. Otherwise, if adults read or listen to the news, I imagine that they would abstain or forego close (fleshy) encounters with anyone they don’t know well or who they have not observed to be prudent and free of illness for a week?


I am curious. No moral judgement, but awareness and smart, informed thinking should prevail. That is why I think that someone being contagious before they have any overt symptoms must be at play.

I feel horrible for anyone going through an MPX infection.
