Two Door County hospitalizations over the week; misinformation being combatted

You’ll want to find reliable information when it comes to COVID19 vaccines, and Wisconsin Department of Public Health Secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk says social media isn’t always the best spot. 

 

 

Willems Van Dijk said this during a Thursday press briefing on the COVID19 situation while addressing circulating rumors such as COVID19 vaccines causing fertility issues in women. Also addressed in the briefing was the possibility of approving booster shots in the near future, primarily for those who are immunocompromised. 

 

In Door County’s weekly COVID19 report, there were no new deaths and there were two hospitalizations. Over the week, there were 205 county residents tested and 38 tested positive. The county is currently at 71 active cases. In Wisconsin, the 7-day average for new confirmed cases is at 1104 and the 7-day average for new reported deaths is two.

 

In vaccine totals, Wisconsin has 53% of its residents with at least one dose and 49.9% of residents are fully vaccinated. Door County has 68.2% of residents with at least one dose and 65.5% of residents have completed the series.
