Monkeypox update

The CCHD currently has no plans to provide Monkeypox vaccinations to the general public in Clinton County.

If you suspect you have been exposed to someone with Monkeypox, please contact your healthcare provider for guidance.

Vaccine is only available at this time, on a case-by-case basis, for individuals deemed close contacts. The vaccine may prevent or reduce symptoms of Monkeypox infections in individuals exposed to Monkeypox.
