Door County Public Health Director Sue Powers the decision of who gets vaccinated for COVID-19 will not be up to her department. NBC News is reporting the first round of COVID-19 vaccines could be available by December 1st thanks to the high success rate of Moderna and Pfizer in their early trials. The first vaccines will likely go to doctors and nurses first before going to the elderly and people with health problems. Powers says there will be some paperwork pharmacies, health departments, and hospitals have to fill out first before they can administer the vaccines.
Powers says they are given the parameters from the state and the Centers for Disease Control on who can get vaccinated who may have to wait. Until your name gets called, Powers recommends wearing a mask, avoid large gatherings, and keep your social distance.
