Door County Medical Center is now allowing people 18 years of age and older to schedule their COVID-19 vaccine. The news comes one day after Governor Tony Evers announced residents 16 years old and up will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine on April 5th. Outpatient Services Coordinator Michelle Johnson says there is a reason why, at least for now, they will not be able to vaccinate people younger than 18 years old.
People interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine can schedule their appointment on the Door County Medical Center website. The state also announced earlier this week that CVS would start administering COVID-19 vaccines through the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program, joining select Pick-n-Save, Walgreens, Walmart, and Hometown Pharmacy locations. This week, 648 vaccine doses have been administered in Door County and 316 have been distributed in Kewaunee County.
