COVID vaccines coming to Door County

Vaccines for COVID-19 will beat Santa Claus in its arrival to Door County. During its Facebook Live session on Monday night, Door County Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise said it would be getting its first allotment of COVID-19 vaccines later this week. The Moderna-produced vaccines will be made available first to health care workers and nursing home residents before going down the list of tiers established by the Centers for Disease Control. Door County Public Health Manager Sue Powers said some long-term care facilities in the area could be getting the vaccine as soon as next week. She adds that they have been planning the rollout for weeks, but everything is subject to change.

Both Powers and Heise said there is no sign-up list available right now, but there could be in the future as more people are inoculated and more vaccines become available. You can watch the full video of the vaccine-focused Facebook Live session below.
