In the report released by the Door County Public Health department on Monday, positive cases are still rising. With about 100 tests given, 15 tested positive with a total of 124 active cases at this time. Three hospitalizations are also shown with no new deaths within the county. As of the 23rd of August Door County remains listed as a high activity level for infections. In Door County 65.8% of residents have had one dose of the vaccine.
In the report the Door County Public Health stated that if you are moderately or severely immunocompromised you should receive a third Pfizer or Moderna dose no sooner than 28 days after your initial two doses. The third dose of the vaccine can help to increase an immunocompromised person’s protection against contracting COVID-19. At this time, people who are not moderately or severely immunocompromised do not need a third dose of a vaccine.
Governor Tony Evers with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced Wisconsin residents who receive their first dose of any COVID-19 vaccine from a Wisconsin provider between August 20 and September 6 can collect a $100 Visa gift card. All residents ages 12 and older are eligible to receive this prize. All that is required is filling out a form at this link. The form is only to ensure that people signing up did indeed receive the vaccine from a Wisconsin provider. The Visa cards will then be mailed to the residence with the state of Wisconsin within six weeks.
