Waning vaccine interest worries health officials

Door County Health and Human Services Director Joe Krebsbach is worried about what a drop in vaccination rates could mean for the area.

 

The Associated Press reported approximately 57 percent of the adult population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccination rates have slowed to a point where states are asking the federal government to send less of the vaccine. Door County Public Health is seeing approximately a third of the people request appointments through its web portal compared to just over a month ago when hundreds were attending drive-thru clinics.

 

As tourism season starts to ramp up, Krebsbach believes more vaccinated individuals can be helpful.

Door County Public Health is providing walk-thru clinics for the Pfizer vaccine by appointment, which can be scheduled online. Kewaunee County is hosting Johnson & Johnson vaccine clinics on Tuesday and Wednesday this week by appointment, but they will also accept walk-ins as well.
