Are you still getting the Monkey Pox vaccine?
The Monkey Pox epidemic has been declared over. It seems it’s not a thing anymore. Anyone who has it would be obvious by now. Is it still worth it to go get the vaccine or is it paranoid overkill at this point?

I’m not, I’ve only had sex with 5 or 6 guys in the last 3 yrs. At that rate my odds of winning Powerball are probably better than catching Mpox. I’m 5x vaxed against Covid but caught it on Monday.

Done with both shots in the summer; the second one was at the end of August. I haven’t given monkeypox a thought in months.

Got my second shot a month ago...at least I dont have to think about getting mpox ever again. I don't like the scar though.

I haven’t had a chance yet to get it but I plan to.

Are they giving the full shot or the small amount that goes under your skin?
Which version causes the welt?
|by Anonymous||reply 6||November 19, 2022 1:29 PM
Got both shots under the skin both under the skin. Left marks that don’t hurt or itch but definitely noticeable. Was told they take 3-4 months to completely fade but worth it not to have to worry about getting it.

I got the first dose, when the were still giving it in the regular way. Have avoided the second dose because I don't want that scar.

I got one dose in August. With average daily cases in the low single digits in large cities, I’m not so worried.

That seems right. My second shot was under the skin and about three months ago. It is now mostly faded.

You get a scar? Fuck that. I’m not going to get disfigured for this.

Getting monkeypox will leave you more disfigured than the vaccine scar.

I don't think this will be the last we see of monkeypox. I wouldn't be surprised if this outbreak is analogous to the first SARS outbreak -- scary but ultimately contained. The next time, monkeypox might come back more contagious, and those who are already vaccinated will be glad, while the government scrambles to respond.

The nurse who gave me the second shot said I couldn't get it in my upper arm where its easier to conceal the scar, but did have a great suggestion to get it directly in the scar from the first shot. I only have one scar to deal with.

I want to have sex (at least oral)...haven't hooked up since before MP. But I haven't had the MP vaccine since I wasn't hooking up.
Cases in NYC are like single digits per day (1-3 last few weeks).
Not sure what to do.

Does the scar ever go away?
|by Anonymous||reply 19||November 20, 2022 6:26 PM
Could the scar be a Scarlet A years from now? People think “Oh, you’re one of those sluts who had to get the Monkey Pox vaccine because you couldn’t stop whoring for those few months in 2022 when Monkey Pox was a thing.”

r19, its a small scar. I think it depends on the person. If you keloid it may not. Mine is still fading. I am one month post second shot I expect it to be totally faded in another 6-8 weeks. I use scar treatment on it as well. My scars take a very long time to fade. I wore a small band-aid over it for the first 3 weeks, the wound is just gross for the first 2 weeks, definitely keep it covered up.
The winter months are a better time to get it, you can just wear clothes over the scar until spring and it will be faded. I also got sick for two days after the second shot with fever and weakness, but it went away quickly.

It was such a fad. If you didn't get shots in the summer than the moment has passed.

Just tell them you get keloid scarring and youll get the full dose in your tricep.

OK, you convinced me not to get the vaccine.

I said back in August monkeypox would be a non-issue a year from now and someone here called me pathologically optimistic. I almost never make predictions anymore post-2016, but I saw this one coming a mile away.

I got two doses. I had sex with 10ish rentboys since then. No issues

I got my second shot 6 weeks ago. The injection site was noticeable the first month or so, but it's completely gone now. No scar.

r20 Oh yeah because normal men don't have sex for 3 months. You're a fucking cretin.

No, it doesn’t. It is minuscule by comparison. AND, as I noted above, it disappears in a few months. It does not last very long.

Since we live in a world full of unvaccinated dolts, I will take any vaccine I'm allowed.

Thought the same thing OP - but at my “gay” doctor appointment last month, he asked and I said yes. Annoying and irritating bump but I guess it’s ok. Not sure would go out of my way for it now - but I got it and don’t think about it now.

It looks more like a slowly disappearing pimple….I have no bump at this point, slight reddish but obscured by my arm hair. It is not at all like the “blotchy” bicep spot from the old subdural vaccine.

I got them in the summer. I haven't been super sexually active (but a fair amount) and a dear friend of mine described Monkeypox as 1000x worse than COVID.
Yeah...pass on that, thanks.

I have both shots and don't see a scar at all and even if, better to be protected from this horrible scaring disease than getting it. Are some of you really bothered with a tiny scar as small as an ant?
