Gillibrand Wants Biden To Invoke Production Act For Monkeypox Vaccine

There are probably easier things to do which require less vaccine

Gillibrand calls on Biden to invoke Production Act, increase monkeypox vaccines

Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Wednesday called on the Biden administration to invoke the Defense Production Act to help increase supply and access to monkeypox vaccines, which lag far behind demand as the virus continues to spread nationwide.

“Right now there are enough vaccines in the United States to cover one-third of the community generally currently most at risk,” Gillibrand said during a press conference. The senator’s own state of New York is the hardest hit in the country and has declared a disaster emergency.

Which community is that, Senator? Neither you nor the article say

Gillibrand’s calls for DPA action come after The Washington Post recently reported that the U.S. won’t be receiving any more doses of the monkeypox vaccine Jynneos until October.

When pressed on specifics of what the DPA could do to increase supply quickly, Gillibrand pointed to prioritizing government orders of monkeypox vaccines ahead of other orders.

“We know exactly which manufacturers already manufacture those vaccines, and so we can enter a contract with them immediately,” she said.

Perhaps she could ask Biden why his HHS failed

U.S. Could Have Had Many More Doses of Monkeypox Vaccine This Year

The shortage of vaccines to combat a fast-growing monkeypox outbreak was caused in part because the Department of Health and Human Services failed early on to ask that bulk stocks of the vaccine it already owned be bottled for distribution, according to multiple administration officials familiar with the matter.

By the time the federal government placed its orders, the vaccine’s Denmark-based manufacturer, Bavarian Nordic, had booked other clients and was unable to do the work for months, officials said — even though the federal government had invested well over $1 billion in the vaccine’s development.

So, Biden, who’s barely mentioned in the NY Times article, is upset

Two senior federal officials, who requested anonymity in order to speak frankly, said Mr. Biden is upset by the vaccine shortage. His administration has often touted its success delivering hundreds of millions of coronavirus shots to Americans, and is stung by criticism that a lack of foresight and management has left gay men — the prime risk group for monkeypox — unprotected.

Now, if Trump was in office, the whole piece would be one long blamestorm, mentioning that the buck stops here. That paragraph is deep into the piece, and followed by

So far, according to the C.D.C., 6,326 cases of monkeypox have been reported. For now, the virus is spreading almost entirely among gay and bisexual men, and those with multiple or anonymous partners are considered especially at risk. Mr. Becerra noted that while more than a million Americans have died of Covid-19, no one in the United States has died of monkeypox.

Yeah, so, men involved in gay say, often with multiple or anonymous partners. Gillibrand, along with a lot of agencies and governors, should be telling them to stop doing that for a bit. Perhaps the governors of California and New York, who have declared emergencies, can lock down the bathhouses and other places this behavior is occurring. Restrict the skeezy public parties, like keep happening in the streets of San Francisco. Funny that the government is unwilling to lock down or restrict on this, right?

After repeating early COVID mistakes, US now has the world’s biggest monkeypox outbreak

The story of monkeypox feels to experts frustratingly like a replay of the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

Testing took too long to get launched. Data hasn’t revealed the full extent of the outbreak. The spread wasn’t stopped quickly enough.

Monkeypox was supposed to be different, because it is much harder to transmit, treatments and vaccines were already available, much was known about a virus first described in 1958 and so many lessons were supposedly learned from COVID-19.

Yet the United States now has the world’s biggest outbreak of monkeypox with more than 6,600 Americans diagnosed since mid-May. Rarely seen outside of Africa before the spring, the virus, a less deadly cousin of smallpox, has now triggered a 26,000-person global emergency, reaching 83 countries, 76 of which had not historically seen the disease.

No, it’s not like COVID. We know how it’s being spread and the majority of whom is getting it. If anything, it’s like Democratic Party governors sticking old people in nursing homes where COVID could spread and kill them (yet, no one has been tried in a criminal court for this): we all knew this would be bad. Gay many having gay sex at parties is a great way to spread it. Not sure why any would continue for the moment.

“If we don’t react more aggressively within the next couple of months – it’ll never be the same as coronavirus, but it could mimic the (spread of the) AIDS epidemic pretty closely,” said Jared Auclair, an analytical chemist and associate dean at Northeastern University in Boston.

And the news and government were afraid to say “hey, gay men, this is mostly involving you. So, don’t engage in risky sex.”

    Reagan was slow to realize the consequences of HIV because he like Teach thought it would be confined to gays. Big mistake. Better to be safe than sorry.

      Hairy: “Reagan was slow to realize the consequences of HIV because he like Teach thought it would be confined to gays.”

      Kinda like Fauci saying we didn’t need masks…

    • ruralcounsel says:

      The gay community denied AIDS was a gay problem for years because they thought it stigmatized them. In fact, they denied it was even a disease, and refused to alter their behavior that spread it like wildfire. (Just like they are doing with monkeypox.) The slow response to treating AIDS was largely the fault of the gay community.

      Now, the health officials are lying by scaremongering the entire population over a disease easily and quickly controlled if the gay community would just alter their behavior to discourage the gay orgies and promiscuity. It is only a pandemic of the promiscuous gay men for the moment. Eventually, it will jump they queer barrier and be a problem for everyone … but only because gay men won’t stop being sluts.

    Code for gay. Just be honest about it.

    Bwaha! Lolgf

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Then maybe, just maybe “the community generally currently most at risk,” should curtail banging each other in the ass till the outbreak is over. Call it “mandatory closing” like they did to businesses during Wuflu or “social distancing”. Either way if the queers keep their dicks to themselves they (and we) would be much better off.

      Maybe they should wear masks and condoms till future notice?

      FJB the “Pedo” as he’s known in the family.

      • david7134 says:

        Clearly you did not get the memo indicating that you can not tell queers to avoid sex. Despite the fact that it would be logical for that bunch to avoid sex for at least two weeks, much less jumping on an angry member that is coated with pustules, we don’t do such things in the liberal US of A. Oh, the memo was in the same packet with the new hand signals.

    From The Washington Post:

    As monkeypox strikes gay men, officials debate warnings to limit partners
    Sex is a major driver of the global outbreak. But health officials and longtime HIV activists say calls for abstinence don’t work.
    By Fenit Nirappil and Amrita Jayakumar | Updated August 4, 2022 at 3:55 p.m. EDT | Published August 4, 2022 at 6:54 a.m. EDT

    SAN FRANCISCO — Thousands of gay men clad in leather, latex — and often much less — partied along Folsom Street here last weekend during the annual kink and fetish festival. Even after the city had just declared the monkeypox outbreak striking its gay community a health emergency — one day after the World Health Organization urged men to sleep with fewer men to reduce transmission — San Francisco public health officials made no attempt to rein in festivities or warn attendees to have less sex.

    As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention weighs whether to recommend limiting sex partners, health officials in San Francisco, Chicago, New York and other U.S. cities battling surges disproportionately sickening gay men are avoiding calls for sexual restraint, wary of further stigmatizing same-sex intimacy.

    Public health authorities typically emphasize safer sex over abstinence to prevent the spread of diseases through intimate contact. But monkeypox is presenting new challenges in calibrating the right message to stop the rare virus from becoming endemic while limiting government intrusion into the bedroom.

    There’s more at the original, but the underlying theme is clear: a government which was willing to lock down the economy, order people not to gather together, to order them to stay in their homes, to order them to wear face masks, to shut down ‘non-essential’ businesses, and to even close churches, can’t seem to bring itself to tell homosexual males to stop f(ornicating) promiscuously. Political correctness most definitely trumps actual science.

    There’s a second underlying theme: the government holds to the stereotype that homosexual males are heavily promiscuous, something that We Are Not Supposed To Say, but which we all know is true, even if we don’t admit it to others.

  7. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    This is a lot like the abortion epidemic, caused by heterosexual men spewing their sperm into girls and women without using contraception! The obvious answer is for men to stop having unprotected sex with women. This is how abortion spreads. No unwanted pregnancies, no abortions.

    Heterosexual male pedophiles, when you rape a 10 year old girl please wear a condom.

    The government holds to the stereotype that heterosexual males are heavily promiscuous, something that We Are Not Supposed To Say, but which we all know is true, even if we don’t admit it to others.

    • CarolAnn says:

      Yeah, right. So now you admit to being an out of control hetero male so promiscuous you need to murder your progeny for birth control? Aren’t you just a blessing to little girls everywhere. You realize most child rape is by homos?

      Your disgusting hatred toward your fellow man cannot be exaggerated. You are really sexual deviant and a pig. I have no Idea how your wife and family tolerate such a base and hateful man.

      • The Liberal but not libertarian Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Speaking of base and hateful humans… submitted for your approval: Mx CarolAnn.

        I have 3 children, all wanted, all with my wife of 50 years. I’ve never been responsible for any abortions.

        Gay men rarely impregnate young girls. Or give them venereal diseases.

        My family tolerates me for my wit, kindness, joie de vivre, decency, reliability and liberalism.

  8. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    There are 10s of millions of Americans living with venereal diseases (syphilis, gonorrhea, AIDS, chlamydia, Herpes, HPV…) with millions of new cases transmitted each year!!

    Gay men rarely transmit these diseases to women.

    Men wearing condoms would prevent most of the transmission! Why doesn’t the gov’t do/say something? BTW, condom use among teens stands around 50%.

    Unmarried Christian men, since they never have sex, don’t have to worry.
