Prevent Mpox

There are several steps to take to prevent getting or spreading mpox. Avoid sexual contact, kissing or other intimate contact with people who have visible sores. Avoid contact with animals that could carry the virus. Avoid contact with any materials, such as bedding, which have been in contact with a sick animal or person. Separate infected patients from other people and animals who could be at risk for infection. Wear proper personal protective equipment when caring for infected patients. Wash your hands with soap and water after caring for infected patients. Vaccines for smallpox and mpox might reduce the chances of getting mpox.
