Heading out on the town, meeting new people or going on a holiday should be all about creating unforgettable memories and having a (pleasurable) blast. But let’s face it — nobody wants to worry about unexpected health issues ruining the fun. That’s where insurance comes in handy, in the form of an MPOX vaccine.
While the number of mpox cases in Australia has subsided, it’s important to stay informed. Recent cases in Australia remind us that mpox is still out there, and community transmission is still occurring internationally.
Now, more than ever, it’s the perfect time to safeguard yourself, your mates, and your lovers by getting vaccinated — especially if you’re heading overseas. mpox vaccines are safe and effective and are provided free of charge for all eligible people.
It is possible for any person who has come into close physical contact with a person infected with mpox to become infected. The virus spreads mainly through close physical contact if a person is exposed to infectious ulcers, lesions, or sores on the skin or in the mouth or throat.
Remember, maximum protection requires 2 doses, given at least 28 days apart, and it takes 2 weeks for a dose to reach the highest level of protection in your body. That means that it will take at least six weeks to reach full protection.
Don’t delay, book your vaccination now and ensure you’re fully covered before the party starts!
