Oh no! Not good! If one child comes down with Monkeypox, both sides will explode with vaccination/anti-vaccination headlines. I so hope no child gets this crap. I can imagine Fox, InfoWars, etc., exploding with indignity that children have contracted a “gay” disease (as it has erroneously been labeled early on by RW media.) Please, let’s not visit Stupidville again so early.
Fortune headline: A daycare worker in Illinois has tested positive for monkeypox, as the FDA approves use of vaccine for children: ‘It’s a transmissible infectious disease’

An adult daycare worker in Illinois has tested positive for monkeypox, state officials said Thursday, raising concerns that the smallpox-related virus could take off in congregate settings.
All children and adults at the center in Champaign County are being screened, and no additional cases have been identified so far. Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzker has been in touch with the White House regarding the situation, state officials said.
The Food and Drug Administration authorized the use of the Jynneos vaccine—a smallpox vaccine also used for monkeypox, approved for adults 18 and older—for children under 18 “without jumping through normal hoops,” state officials said, adding that mobile testing and vaccination services are on site.
