MonkeyPox - The Latest Sexually Transmitted Disease To Hit The UK?

UK authorities have done their best not to label the outbreak in MonkeyPox a sexually transmitted disease, but in their own diplomatic way are starting to make such announcements:

Monkeypox: Gay and bisexual men at higher risk of exposure to be offered vaccines, Sky News, 21st of June 2022.

A vaccine is to be offered for groups at most risk: homosexual men and sex workers with higher levels of transmission "within, but not exclusive to, the sexual networks of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men".

Don't stop all that anal sex, prostitution and promiscuous behaviour but instead distribute a vaccine.
