Updates on Monkeypox Testing, Vaccination, and Treatment in Maine
The global outbreak of monkeypox continues to grow in Maine and across the United States. Most cases have been identified in urban areas in other states. More cases are expected in Maine. Nationwide, the outbreak remains largely confined to gay, bisexual, or other men who have sex with men and transgender, gender non-conforming, or non-binary individuals who have sex with men, although some infections have been identified in other people.
This health advisory provides updates on three key areas for clinicians: testing, vaccination, and treatment.
