Kewaunee County administers first COVID-19 vaccines

Two-hundred doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are expected to be given in Kewaunee County in the coming days.


The Kewaunee County Public Health Department received the Pfizer-produced vaccines earlier this week and began administering them on Tuesday. Right now the only people eligible to get the vaccine are those considered to be in Phase 1A, which includes emergency personnel, community-based residential facilities, funeral homes, eye clinics, and dental offices.


In a statement released on Thursday, Kewaunee County Public Health Director Cindy Kinnard stressed patience for those waiting to get the vaccine. They are not sure how many additional doses they will receive and when they will get them.


You can contact the Kewaunee County Public Health Department to be placed on a waiting list for the COVID-19 vaccine for when you are eligible to receive it.
