HONOLULU — The Hawai‘i Department of Health (DOH) is reporting three additional cases of monkeypox.
Beginning today, DOH will primarily report new cases online at https://health.hawaii.gov/docd/disease_listing/monkeypox/. Cases will continue to be reported as new information is received.
DOH is also releasing additional data on JYNNEOS vaccine administration in Hawai‘i. Vaccination data will be updated on Wednesdays at https://health.hawaii.gov/docd/hawaii-monkeypox-data/.
The three newly reported cases are all O‘ahu residents. This brings the total number of cases reported in Hawai‘i since June 3 to 28, including three non-residents. DOH continues to conduct contact tracing and follow-up with all reported cases.
“As monkeypox cases continue to rise across the country and in Hawai‘i, DOH will continue to provide updated information to the public,” said Deputy State Epidemiologist Dr. Nathan Tan. “It’s critically important to us that we continue to make vaccination available to communities disproportionately impacted by this outbreak—and the data released today will help all of us ensure that vaccine is being distributed equitably.”
