You will be able to check the COVID-19 vaccine off your Back-to-School list in Kewaunee County next week. The Kewaunee County Public Health Department will host the school immunization clinic at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds Expo Hall in Luxemburg on August 5th, which will give students above the age of 12, teachers, parents, and other community members a chance to become fully vaccinated before classes resume in September. Kewaunee County Public Health Director Cindy Kinnard says the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has been proven effective, even against the Delta variant that has been tougher on kids than other strains. She adds it can help kids potentially stay in the classroom.
The COVID-19 school immunization clinic will take place on August 5th with the second shot coming on August 26th. The vaccine will be available from 1-6 p.m. both days. Kinnard says the department also has other days available at their office in Kewaunee if the Luxemburg dates do not work for you.
