Monkeypox: What you need to know

Due to increasing cases of monkeypox in Allegheny county, Allies is now offering both monkeypox testing and monkeypox vaccination.

If you come in contact with someone who may have or has monkeypox, or if you believe that you have symptoms that could be monkeypox, please contact our office to discuss testing options.

We are currently following the vaccine eligibility guidelines from the CDC and PA department of health to distribute the monkeypox vaccine. If you would like to discuss the monkeypox vaccine, please call our office and discuss your vaccine eligibility with one of our medical providers.

If you are experiencing symptoms (click here for a list of symptoms(opens in a new tab)) or believe you have been exposed to monkeypox, please call Allies at 412-345-7456 to make an appointment with one of our medical providers.

Allies Position Statement

As an agency founded in opposition to discrimination against people with HIV/AIDS, Allies has always striven to create a place where racial and sexual minorities feel welcome, safe and respected. We stand firmly against injustice in all forms and strongly in support of those working to change institutional racism and discrimination. We hear you, we serve you, and we are your Allies.

Allies Statement on the Dobbs-Jackson ruling

On June 24, the Supreme Court issued its ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson, which reverses the 1973 decision on Roe v. Wade. Access to abortion will now be determined on a state-by-state basis. Pennsylvania currently permits abortion up to 24 weeks of pregnancy, and Gov. Tom Wolf has vowed to protect Pennsylvanians’ right to abortion for the length of his term. 

 

As a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide integrated medical care, supportive human services, and community-based education for individuals living with, or at risk of HIV, viral hepatitis, and sexually transmitted infections, this ruling does not directly affect the work of Allies for Health + Wellbeing. However, the decision is likely to impact our consumers and their families and will disproportionately affect communities of color. 

 

HIV, hepatitis C, gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis are preventable and treatable, but only if people have access to regular screenings and are educated in methods of prevention. Any action that results in limiting the number of clinics or organizations that provide affordable and accessible screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections will result in more people with preventable and treatable diseases. 

 

As an agency founded in opposition to discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS, we are deeply concerned by any decision that impedes a person’s access to healthcare. We at Allies strive for a community where quality, integrated medical care and supportive human services are available to all, free of stigma and discrimination. We believe that people are the experts of their own experience, and we are committed to understanding and removing barriers to care and health disparities. We will continue to be a resource for all those who come to us, and we reaffirm our commitment to create a place where everyone is safe and welcome. 

 

You can take that step.
