    Monkeypox outbreak, 

    vaccine availability 

    The North Central District Health Department has the JYNNEOS vaccine for monkeypox available from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday at its local health departments in Henry, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties. If you have questions about the vaccine, contact the KDPH monkeypox hotlines at (844) 520-6670.

    Due to the very low number of cases in Kentucky, a limited number of vaccines is being made available for use in the commonwealth. The Kentucky Department of Public Health and the North Central District Health Department both share and appreciate the concern for expanded access to the vaccine.

    To ensure the most at-risk population is first to receive the vaccine, the KDPH on Aug. 25 updated the criteria for eligibility for the vaccine.

    Current Covid-19 Numbers
    Updated COVID-19 Guidance

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has relaxed mask recommendations for those living in areas of low or moderate risk based on a new formula that takes into account hospitalizations, hospital capacity and case numbers.

    The new CDC formula ranks counties by Low, Medium and High, and the Kentucky Department of Public Health will follow these guidelines, only recommending masking in high-ranking areas. The information can be found on the CDC website, and it has been added to Kentucky’s Kycovid19.ky.gov, taking the place of the incidence rate map. Kentucky will measure counties in a traffic-light system with Green-Low, Yellow-Medium and Red-High.
