A couple of cases of mpox are being reported by Riverside County Public Health officials.
A man in the Coachella Valley has come down with it, and so has a man in western Riverside County.
These are the only 2 cases of mpox in the County since early July.
There are 2 and a half million people in Riverside County.
There is a vaccine against mpox, ask your doctor about it.
Best way to prevent mpox, avoid contact with someone who has open sores and don’t share body fluids with someone who has mpox.
