Appointments are required and appointment times are limited each week.
Individuals age 65 and older may schedule an appointment online at https://bookdcph.timetap.com/#/. Those who need assistance in the scheduling process may also call Door County Public Health at 920-746-7180 during regular business hours and they will schedule an appointment for you.
Door County Medical Center launched its vaccine signup portal for individuals over the age of 65 on Wednesday. High demand for the vaccine crashed the hospital’s website within minutes.
When scheduling online, you will be asked to answer a few screening questions, enter your contact information then schedule an appointment. Once the appointment is scheduled, you will receive further instructions via email, information on the vaccine and a consent form to complete and bring on the day you receive your vaccine.
This online scheduling system is a new tool. To test and assure the functionality of the system Public Health will only be scheduling appointments four weeks in advance. Delays are expected with the anticipated heavy use it will experience.
An estimated 7,000 Door County residents are over the age of 65. The county site will provide about 700 vaccines per week, according to the Public Health Department.. Appointment availability is also dependent on vaccine made available from the state.
“It will take time, patience, and cooperation to vaccinate this population,” read a health department statement. “Door County Public Health will continue to work diligently with our community partners to provide vaccine safely and effectively to our community.”
