Mendocino County Public Health Warns of Monkeypox Circulation


The following is a press release issued by Mendocino County Public Health:

Last year we saw a multinational MPX (Monkeypox) Emergency that gradually came under control with community education, treatments, and vaccinations. The virus remains in circulation while numbers have decreased, and the emergency has ended. CDC has reported a new cluster of cases in the Chicago area at the end of April involving 12 confirmed cases, 9 of whom had been vaccinated with Jynneos. The medical community has been notified. I am sending this out so that those who need to finish their vaccine course (2 doses, total for the series), and so those at risk, are aware and can take precautions. 

MPX is usually a self-limited, mild rash consisting of vesicles, pustules, or pimples in the mouth or on or in the genitals. These can appear without symptoms, mild symptoms (burning or itching), or swelling or pain with or without fever, nausea, or vomiting. Complications can include scarring including blindness,  and very rarely death. MPX is spread by close, skin-to-skin contact (usually with sex) and occasionally from shared or handled clothing or bedding. 

If you know you are or may become at risk, please consider the following to reduce your risk: 

  • Avoid close contact with people who have a rash that looks like MPX. 
  • Wash well with soap and water after you do come in contact with an infected person. • If you have the rash see a provider for diagnosis and advice. 
  • If you have had only one of the Jynneos vaccines, please get your second for maximum protection. 

Vaccine appointments are available at Mendocino County Public Health through Myturn.gov. Rite-Aid in  Ukiah, located at 680 S. State St., offers vaccinations to people at high risk. Call (707) 462-6850. 

Federally Qualified Medical Centers (FQMC) and rural clinics may have the vaccine available, but you must call first. If you have any questions about whether or not you should get the vaccine, please contact your healthcare provider.

  1. The “Covid” gene therapy synthetic elixir has a plethora of side effects. One of these is SHINGLES. CDC says it’s a “rare” occurrence. Is it? How would the public know given mainstream news (Pfizer is 70% of their advertising dollars) stays silent. And that the social media platforms ban/censor public discussions about “vaccine” injuries and deaths. The description of the alleged monkeypox is the same as a shingles infection. Indeed, the photo images are visually the same. The public health mafia would have us believe monkeypox rather than admit to the truth about yet another gene therapy side effect.
