The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced that adults over the age of 65 will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine beginning January 25. Currently, frontline health care workers, residents in long-term care facilities (nursing homes and assisted living facilities), and police and fire.
Door County Public Health, in coordination with Door County Emergency Services will begin providing vaccinations to this group beginning next week. Scheduling will be done using an online schedule system. A link will be provided to allow individuals to schedule directly as well as a phone number to call for assistance with scheduling. One factor in how the vaccine clinics will be conducted is the availability of the vaccine. Currently, Door County Public Health expects to be able to provide a little over 700 vaccines per week, approximately 350 first doses administered and approximately 350 second doses administered.
