Door County Public Health will roll out the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for up to 250 unaffiliated healthcare workers this week. Door County Medical Center had provided the Moderna vaccine to consenting frontline staff in the past two weeks. Health Director Susan Powers says the hospital is collaborating with Public Health to now vaccinate dentists, chiropractors, eye doctors, private nurses, EMTs, and other 1A designated workers by invitation only. The first shipment of weekly doses of the Pfizer vaccine will be given in the next few days as another order will come next week.
Powers says Door County Medical Center does have some vaccines leftover and that Public Health could send any 1A population to get vaccinated if they should run out of the 250 doses received. She says the State of Wisconsin has not opened the vaccine to the 1B population, which is not clearly defined by the state at this point. Once Wisconsin has determined who is eligible under the 1B classification, Door County Health Department will then wait for the green light to vaccinate.
