Monday marked the first day all Wisconsin residents 16 and over became eligible for COVID-19 vaccines and Door County Public Health has them if you want it. The county announced on Friday that its allotment of Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines exceeds the number of appointments it has for its upcoming clinic day on Wednesday. The state had slowly added groups to the list of people eligible for the vaccine since December until last Tuesday when they said everyone over the age of 16 could get vaccinated if they chose to do so. After doing about 900 doses at its vaccine clinic last week, Door County Health and Human Services Director Joe Krebsbach said last week it would have to adjust things if they got more supply.
As of Monday morning, 48.4 percent of Door County residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine with 28.6 percent fully vaccinated. The efforts of Door County Public Health, Door County Medical Center, and other partners set a record high for vaccines administered at just over 2,900.
