Monkeypox has been confusing and scary for a number of patients, especially on the heels of the Covid pandemic that we’re still facing. Even though we usually make videos for primary care providers, we decided to make this episode especially for patients, to help clear up some confusion for them, as well as show clinicians an example of how we have these conversations with our patients.

Monkeypox Explained Clearly

In this episode, we cover the answer to the questions:

  • What is Monkeypox?
  • What the symptoms are and how bad are they?
  • Who is getting this and why?
  • Will I die from this?
  • How does it spread?
  • Is there a vaccine and who gets it?

For any patients watching, please seek out medical care from your primary care providers. This episode is for educational purposes only, is not medical advice, and we cannot advise individual people on their health concerns!
