Collin County Monnkeypox Response Update Press Release

Collin County continues to monitor the monkeypox situation within the community. Collin County Health Care Services (CCHCS) has identified 14 cases of monkeypox and has already contacted each individual and their direct contacts. CCHCS provides guidance to those affected by the virus and vaccinations to individuals that have had close contact with a confirmed case.
 
Collin County is prepared to vaccinate an expanded population of individuals who wish to receive the JYNNEOS vaccine for monkeypox as soon as additional vaccine is delivered by the Centers for Disease Controls and Prevention (CDC) and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).
 
"At this time, Collin County does not need to issue a Disaster Declaration. Our health department is well-positioned to respond to the current monkeypox situation," said Public Health Director Candy Blair.
 
Collin County Judge Chris Hill said Tuesday, "Collin County does not have a public health emergency related to monkeypox. The vast majority of cases that have been identified in Collin County are related to a specific lifestyle, and the public health department has the resources and the capacity to respond to these cases. Additionally, I have directed Collin County Health Care Services to offer resources and assistance to Dallas County, as necessary. Collin County is prepared to help support the region's public health needs."
 
Collin County will continue to coordinate and work closely with local, state, and national health agencies to keep the residents of Collin County safe and informed.
