Closeted men were less likely to get the Mpox vaccine for a very surprising reason

Closeted men who have sex with men were less likely to get vaccinated or treated for Mpox than those who were out, according to a new study. Contrary to the researchers’ hypothesis, however, the findings suggested that the difference in vaccination rates had more to do with a lack of knowledge than with concerns about being outed. “The resource knowledge and community-connected piece seems to be implicated in that process, not outing concerns, and that was a surprise to me,” said Joel Le Forestier, a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Communication at Cornell University and the lead author of the study, which published earlier this month in the journal Psychological Science.
