“I heard there was a new shot that could help prevent people from getting herpes from someone who is already infected. If so, do you have this shot at your clinic so that I can receive it in the near future?”
A: Right now, there is no vaccination to protect against getting herpes. There are medications that someone with herpes can take to relieve their symptoms, but there are no medications to prevent its spread. The only way to help protect against herpes is to use a condom correctly and consistently with every act of intercourse.
