There are now five reported cases of monkeypox in Kansas City

Kansas City, Missouri expands access to monkeypox vaccine. The city health department created an online survey so more people who are identified as high-risk can be protected. Until now, the vaccine has been so limited that only people with direct exposure could get government approval to be vaccinated. That is changing. Now people who have at least one high-risk factor can self-identify to get the vaccine. There are now five reported cases of monkeypox in Kansas City, 25 in Missouri, three in Kansas and 14,000 nationwide. All local cases came from out-of-state exposure. “If we can vaccinate people, that will stop the spread,” said Scott Clardy of the Kansas City Health Department. Monkeypox causes painful lesions on the skin. Starting now, 1,125 people who meet the risk criteria can receive the vaccine preventively. The vaccine is available at five locations in northwest Missouri.” Basically, here are four criteria. Do you answer at least one of them? If they say yes, then you will contact them,” Clary said. To get on the list, residents must complete this survey. The vaccine requires two doses 28 days apart. “I’m really hoping we’ll be vaccinating people in the first part of next week,” Clardy said. Although anyone can get monkeypox, the health department said 90 percent of cases so far have been among LGBT people. Information from the study is protected by HIPPA — so the health department said people shouldn’t have any concerns about privacy. Data is confidential. “If you’re concerned that you may have been exposed to monkeypox, go online, fill out this form and let us get you in to get vaccinated,” Clary said. The Kansas City Health Department is taking steps to get more doses of the vaccine. They currently have enough doses for 4,500 people in all of northwest Missouri.
