Mpox (formerly Monkeypox)

Mpox, or monkeypox, is a viral disease that can spread through close with someone carrying the virus.

Mpox is usually a mild illness and most people recover on their own after a few weeks. Public Health is collaborating with other regional health officials to monitor the situation.

Vaccination is available in urban areas of Quebec and in Eeyou Istchee to people who are considered especially at risk.
