Two of the four main ZIP codes in McKinney have more than 40% of the estimated population fully vaccinated, according to totals from the Texas Department of State Health Services.
The 75071 ZIP code has the highest percentage of fully vaccinated residents reported with nearly 54%, while the 75070 ZIP code has the lowest percentage. A little more than 27% of the estimated population in the 75070 ZIP code is fully vaccinated. Census population data for the 75072 ZIP code was unavailable, as this is a relatively new ZIP code for McKinney, but data from the state shows 26,900 residents in this ZIP code have been fully vaccinated.
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.
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, but the city of McKinney continues to provide city-specific COVID-19 information. As of July 29, there have been 14,418 confirmed COVID-19 cases reported in McKinney, according to the city dashboard. Of those, 270 are active and 14,148 have recovered. Between July 23-29 there were 227 new cases reported in McKinney.
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.
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.
