Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health has confirmed its fourth case of monkeypox. 

The individual is a Guelph man in his 40s. It's the second case to be detected in the City of Guelph, as the first was reported in mid-June. 

The health unit has also previously reported two other cases, both attributed to Wellington County.

All of the cases so far have been men, ranging in age from their 20s to their 60s. 

In an e-mail statement, a spokesperson with WDG Public Health said vaccination clinics are still being offered every Tuesday in August, in partnership with ARCH. They're expected to continue into September.
