The number of people vaccinated in Frisco’s four main ZIP codes has increased since vaccines were made available to those age 12 and older in May.
The 75035 ZIP code has the most vaccinated residents, per data from the Texas Department of State Health Services, with 47,564 residents receiving both doses of the vaccine. The 75036 ZIP code has the least number of fully vaccinated residents with 19,344.
More than 62% of Collin County residents age 12 and older have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as of July 29, according to the DSHS COVID-19 vaccination dashboard. In Denton County, that number sits at just over 55%.
The dashboard shows a combined estimate of more than 956,000 people in the two counties are reported as being fully vaccinated. DSHS estimates show there are close to 1.5 million residents age 16 and older in Collin and Denton counties, although vaccine appointments are not limited to county residents.
More than 26 million doses have been administered across Texas since manufacturers began shipping vials to the state in December, according to the DSHS dashboard. Since March 29, all Texas adults are eligible to receive a vaccine for COVID-19. On May 10, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted emergency use authorization for the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine to those ages 12-15. COVID-19 vaccinations had previously been available only to those age 16 and older.
Collin County announced in August 2020 that it would no longer report city-specific information. Frisco does not provide city-specific COVID-19 information. As of July 29, there have been 4,981 total cases reported in Denton County’s portion of Frisco, according to the Denton County dashboard.
In Collin County, there have been 1,162 new confirmed cases from July 23 to July 29. In total there have been 78,263 confirmed cases and 861 deaths in the county, though only 1,671 are listed as active as of July 29 on the DSHS dashboard.
In Denton County, there have been 621 new confirmed cases from July 23 to July 29. In total, almost 80,000 were confirmed to have had the virus as of July 29, and 631 were confirmed dead. The Denton County dashboard listed 3,001 cases as active on July 29.
As of July 28, 8.47% of the hospital beds in Trauma Service Area E, which consists of 19 counties in North Texas including Collin and Denton counties, were occupied by confirmed COVID-19 patients, according to the DSHS dashboard. That marks the first time since March 16 that the trauma service area has been over 5%. It is also a more than 260% increase from the 2.35% of hospital beds occupied by confirmed COVID-19 patients on June 30.
