Dr. David Lakey Statement on Amber Vinson’s Recovery

October 28, 2014

“We are so pleased that Amber Vinson has been declared free of Ebola. She is one of the health care workers who bravely provided care to the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States. Through excellent health care and her own courage, she beat the disease. Based on the clinical and lab findings, people are not at risk of getting the disease from her, and she has been completely cleared. We wish her the best as she transitions back to a normal life, and we welcome her back home to Texas.”

Dr. David Lakey, Commissioner, Texas Department of State Health Services
