County health departments trying new vaccination plans

With over half of Wisconsin’s residents vaccinated for COVID19, your local health agencies are altering their strategies for getting shots to county residents who have yet to do so. You can get the shot at the Kewaunee County Public Health main building at 810 Lincoln Street on Wednesdays and Thursdays and they’re offering you a few alternative choices. You can get vaccinated at the Kewaunee County Fair next week and they’ll offer the vaccine to individuals in their back-to-school program. 

 

Kewaunee County is below the state’s fifty percent mark, as only forty percent of their residents have received a vaccine shot. Kewaunee County Public Health Officer Cindy Kinnard hopes people who haven’t been vaccinated give it more consideration. She adds that hopefully, the vaccination rate increases so that risks of other COVID19 variants are mitigated

 

 

For Door County Public Health, they will provide their last vaccination clinic at the ADRC building in Sturgeon Bay on Wednesday. Starting July 7th, you can get vaccinated in Door County at their building at 421 Nebraska Street. Public Health Manager Susan Powers encourages individuals to book appointments in advance.

 

Door County Public Health will also be at the Sister Bay Fire Station on July 1st. Powers says when there, they’ll see whether or not they need to continue their clinics in Sister Bay. You can also get the shot at the Jacksonport Farm Market on July 6th and based on the number of vaccines administered, public health will determine if there’s a need to go back for second doses. Powers says that a big part of what they’re doing now is trying to get younger individuals vaccinated. 

 

 

On Tuesday, the Wisconsin Department of Public Health released their COVID19 report showing one new death and 73 new confirmed cases in the state. Door County is at 65.6% of residents with a vaccine dose and 62.8% completed the series. In Kewaunee County, 40.8% of residents have a vaccine dose and 39.2% completed the series.
