4:35 am
supply coming from the federal stockpile was county officials saying the vaccine supply still pretty low right now, more doses are needed. the county reporting 65 probable and confirmed cases of monkeypox at this point this morning. now the entire bay area is dealing with a shortage of monkeypox vaccines. but in san mateo county, there are no vaccine clinics at all. kron four's dan kerman explains why. >> well, limited numbers of vaccine has led to long lines and a handful of san francisco monkeypox clinics and san mateo county. there are no monkeypox clinics at all. i'm sure detail county can set up their own clinic say they did it for covid-19 and you're getting up to that patrick is and lives in san mateo county. he says he can't get through to the public health department and staff members of this county supervisor's office have told them to go wait in line in san francisco because san mateo county is sending its vaccine down their game are being pushed off the side, at least in san mateo county, which which i find

4:37 am
yes, if they indicate through that process that they're connected with health care provider has the vaccine will try and help make that connection. and if not, then we will work on setting up some clinics that can get the vaccine to folks that don't have that pathway, patrick hope. san mateo county changes that system quickly. it seems the county needs to get in front of this and say, hey, we do have more doses. let's give these doses out. and if there's extra. >> you know what? that's great. invite people from san francisco to come down. san mateo county, dan kerman kron. 4 news. >> yeah. meanwhile, california and san francisco's departments of health are thinking about requesting a different smallpox vaccine. this one is called a camp 2000. it's a smallpox vaccine that was approved back in 2007, 100 million doses apparently had been stored in the strategic national stockpile. since then. and the state has requested 200 of those doses. we're working right now to learn when we can expect those doses to arrive
