Monkeypox concerns grow as virus spreads across the area

The number of cases of monkeypox is growing in the United States. As of August 1, there are more than 5,000 cases in the U.S.

Coastal cities in Southeast Georgia received a vaccine shipment Monday, but the appointments are already booked for the week. And there is no location for vaccines yet in Northeast Florida.

Medical experts say there is not enough monkeypox vaccine to go around so it’s being sent to the communities that need it the most first.

The Jynneos vaccine was delivered to Chatham County, Georgia to be distributed. The county received 210 doses and gave 60 to Waycross.
