I think we are all probably tired of looking out our windows. The best remedy will be getting out of the house more when it's safer. Until then, you can "Open a New Window" right here. Just x out of pop up ads and click on "open a new window somewhere in the world." And it's not just a static picture -- you'll see people walking, cars driving, waves crashing and branches in the breeze. You might look out on Thailand; maybe Spain -- want to look out another window? just click on "open a new window somewhere in the world" again. Enjoy!

The NYS Department of Health is encouraging New Yorkers to start or complete their two-dose mpox vaccine series. The most impacted community in the outbreak a year ago was men who have sex with men and immunocompromised individuals. Acting State Health Commissioner Dr. James McDonald said,"This year, while mpox cases are extremely low in New York, cases continue to be diagnosed here in New York and around the globe and there is still a risk of resurgence. We are taking proactive measures now to encourage those at risk to get fully vaccinated." 
   

Reach out to a local health department or one of the following providers to make an appointment to be vaccinated.
