The number of monkeypox cases in San Francisco Climbs, with city reports 197 cases As of Tuesday, up from 141 cases a few days ago. Despite the increasing demand, Vaccines Still in short supply. WednesdayIn San Francisco General, people waited in line for up to nine hours to get Jynneos, the only shot specifically approved to prevent monkeypox, while many researchers were turned away from the vaccine. No deaths have been reported in the outbreak in the United States so far, although the rash caused by the virus can be painful and last for two to four weeks.
To get a perspective on the situation in the city, we emailed check-in with UCSF infectious disease expert Dr. Monica Gandhi, whose work on HIV helped clarify her view on monkeypox.
