We know that many in our community are asking about hMPXV (monkeypox). As a trusted community messenger, The Center is here to help connect you to resources and information about hMPXV. Below are some helpful FAQs that we have compiled from local, state, and federal health agencies, as well as information on the County’s next vaccination event this week. We will use the section as well as The Center’s Facebook and Instagram to share the latest updates.
The County has launched a hMPXV text message alert system which allows San Diego County residents to receive real-time information about hMPXV via text. To sign up, text COSD MONKEYPOX to 468-311.
The County has declared a state of emergency, following California’s state of emergency declaration. This allows Emergency Medical Services staff to administer hMPXV vaccines and will allow the County to gain better access to vaccines and funding resources when they become available.
The CDC has released Interim Guidelines for Prevention and Treatment of hMPXV in Persons with HIV Infection.
