Door County Medical Center to end mass vaccination clinics

After administering over 10,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, Door County Medical Center is discontinuing its mass vaccination clinics at the end of the month. In a release from the hospital, the demand for continued vaccinations has dramatically decreased in the past few days as more providers have been able to provide appointments. The efforts of the hospital, Door County Public Health, local pharmacies, and others have helped Door County lead the state of Wisconsin with close to 55 percent of its residents receiving at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Door County Medical Center, which distributes the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, will still hold smaller clinics in the future as needed and will continue with second-dose appointments.  

 

FULL RELEASE

Sturgeon Bay, WI. We are proud to share that Door County Medical Center has now administered almost 10,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, and fully vaccinated about 3300 people!  As of April 14th, Door County is leading the state of Wisconsin with 54.7% of residents having received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.  This is fantastic news and is a testament that our residents care about the health and safety of themselves and those around them!

 

Due to the fast start in vaccinating our community and the efforts of Door County Public Health, local pharmacies, and others, the demand for continued vaccinations has dramatically decreased in the past few days.  Therefore, the COVID-19 mass vaccination clinics held at Door County Medical Center will be ending at the end of April.  We will schedule smaller clinics going forward as needed and will continue with second dose appointments as scheduled.  

While 54.7% is a great vaccination rate, we want to help Door County do its part in reaching herd immunity by getting to at least 80%.  We want to urge you to make an appointment now if you have not received your vaccination. 

 

Door County Medical Center is providing the Moderna COVID-19 vaccination which is a two-dose series for anyone 18 years of age and older.  You can access the link to make an appointment here:  https://www.dcmedical.org/covid19
