Patrick Kot was one of hundreds who waited in line up to two hours outside the Sexual Health Clinic to get vaccinated against monkeypox."I'm feeling a lot better than I was, say, three hours ago," he told CBS2's Nick Caloway.The vehicles, which are illegal to ride in any of New York City's five boroughs, had previously been confiscated and impounded by the NYPD.The shot in Kot's arm is providing a dose of relief."In our most recent customer survey data, it's clear our bus customers feel more safe than our subway customers," Davey said.The clinic was held for anyone who may have had a recent exposure to the virus, but capacity was quickly overwhelmed and city health officials had to stop accepting walk-ins."They will be crushed today so that they can never terrorize our city again.Kot said he was happy to see a strong turnout.If they strike someone, the person is left with medical costs and other out of pocket expenses.

City health officials say while anyone can get monkeypox, current cases are primarily spreading among social networks of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men."It's only spread by very close physical contact," said Dr.They say it isn't sure if the cameras will help deter criminals but think they will help solve individual crimes, and ultimately, they hope it makes people feel a little better about riding the train.Peter Meacher, chief medical officer at the Callen-Lorde Community Health Center.Meacher said it's important for us all to be vigilant not to stigmatize communities that may be disproportionately impacted by monkeypox."You know, we learned a lot with HIV about the pitfalls of stigmatizing groups based not on an identity but a behavior, and in this way, this is no different," Meacher said.

The city only received 1,000 monkeypox vaccine shots, and all appointments are full through Monday.Health officials say they are working with the CDC to get more doses.The CDC says you're most at risk within 14 days of exposure to someone with monkeypox.The GMHC, formerly Gay Men's Health Crisis, has more information on monkeypox on their website here:.
