Are Schools and Colleges the Next Monkeypox Hotspots?
Andy looks around the corner to see who may be at risk of Monkeypox next. Should sexually active teenagers and college students get vaccinated? What about toddlers or wrestling teams? Do we need to worry about bedding? Could Monkeypox mutate as it spreads? How close is close contact? Andy gets answers from UCSF Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Peter Chin-Hong, who has been working directly with Monkeypox patients, and Baylor College Professor of Pediatrics and Molecular Virology Peter Hotez, who has been offering guidance to concerned parents.
