State passes 1M mark for COVID-19 boosters

Wisconsinites are finding that there are plenty of opportunities to get an additional dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Over one million additional/booster doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered since they have been made available in August. Door County Medical Center announced last week it is only administering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine booster, which accounts for over 428,000 of the doses that have been administered statewide. Director of Outpatient Services Sandy Vandertie says it is available to anyone 18 years and over at least six months removed from completing their series with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine or two months ago with the Johnson and Johnson shot.

Medical professionals from across the state made their plea for residents to get vaccinated and take other precautions against COVID-19 as infections are on the rise and hospitals are being strained. Prevea Health CEO Dr. Ashok Rai admitted that one Green Bay hospital had to reject 28 patient transfer requests from other facilities outside of the area because of its capacity limits.
