Door County Medical Center is hoping two vaccination clinics scheduled for this week is part of a larger effort in administering COVID-19 vaccinations. The hospital is hosting a vaccination clinic for Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding employees on Tuesday and NEW Industries on Friday for those who may have not had a convenient time to get vaccinated yet. Door County Medical Center President and CEO Brian Stephens says they are working with other large employers to set up vaccination clinics at their operations. He hopes they could expand it to the county’s hospitality industry and J-1 Visa Student Workers.
Stephens says the fact that many people have already received their vaccinations makes the clinics a little easier since they do not have to do as many or have to worry as much about side effects hindering the companies’ productivity. He adds that they are working with Door County Public Health and other businesses to see how they can help more people get vaccinated as the county creeps towards 60 percent receiving at least one dose.
