Reid’s Favorite Monkeypox Resources

by Reid on August 4, 2022

Here is a quick list of resources that some of my most nerdy and brilliant friends have sent me… And I’ve added a few I found all on my own, too! 😉

Please feel free to email me your favorites to and I might add them to the list!

What are Monkeypox Transmission Risks?

Mpox.Tips has a GREAT post and graphic to help you make sense of Monkeypox… Big thanks to The BonoboNetwork for sending this to me… And gratitude to the folks at for collecting everything and putting it in one place!

Getting Vaccinated…

FYI, here’s what I did — #YourMilageMayVary…

I Googled “monkeypox vaccination __(my county)__” and I called the health department number that came up, told the person that answered that I “am someone who has sex with men who have sex with men and I’d like to get vaccinated for monkeypox.” [I know that mpx isn’t just a M-M thang, FYI, but that’s what I said to get folks’ attention and hopefully not have some clinician or assistant questioning if I needed the vaccine]… The person transferred me to who ever was in charge of the mpx vaccinations and I was quickly put on a waiting list to be notified when there was a spot for me to get vaccinated.

After 10 days of waiting… they called me to schedule my vaccination.
