New York Begins Monkeypox Inoculation Sites
Shots, shots, shots! Those afraid of the monkeypox virus may be in luck — New York City has proudly announced that it now has three mass vaccination sites for the smallpox cousin.
Breitbart News reported that the city is attempting to address the spread of the virus, which apparently has infected almost 500 people, especially homosexual men. Gay males as a general matter are far more likely to spread the virus through sexual contact as compared to others, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
95% of people testing positive for monkeypox are men, CBS New York pointed out. The numbers are potentially higher — the report delusionally stated, “the rest identify as trans, gender non-conforming or non-binary.” Such genders are fictitious, and no statistics on infections in women were provided. While we cannot confirm this now, the report could lead one to conclude that 100% of people testing positive for the virus are men, regardless of their claimed sexuality.
BLP has covered news on the monkeypox virus prior, including the CDC’s revelation that one should wear a mask to prevent the typically sexually-transmitted disease. The agency additionally provided recommendations on how one can go about having sexual intercourse while infected with the virus — one idea the public health “experts” offered is for sexual partners to “masturbate together at a distance of at least 6 feet.”
New York state’s Department of Health posted about the outbreak on Friday:
As of July 15, 490 confirmed orthopoxvirus/monkeypox caseshave been identified, with 461 in NYC, 16 in Westchester Cnty, 4 in Suffolk, 3 in Nassau, 1 in Sullivan, 1 in Chemung, 1 in Rockland, 1 in Erie, 1 in St. Lawrence & 1 in Monroe Cnty.

Over 9,000 appointments were available Friday, which were all reportedly booked within minutes of their availability. The Health Department has promised that more doses are expected to arrive from the federal government soon.
CBS reported that many traveled quite far in order to secure the inoculation.
“So I took the train for an hour and a half to get here,” he said.
“Worth it?” asked reporter Tony Aiello.
“Um, I guess. We don’t really have a choice, right? Gotta try to stay safe,” Gottlieb said.
New York City health commissioner Ashwin Vasan told reporters that second doses of the monkeypox inoculations will not be held but instead distributed to more residents to help ensure more widespread coverage.
“My scientists looked at the data and said the first shot provides sufficient protection. Not as much as two shots, but significant, and so we said, let’s use these all as first shots,” Vasan said.
