The Door County Public Health Department will receive 200 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine this week, allowing it to begin working through the list of people whose appointments have been cancelled.
By the end of the week the department will have provided 916 doses of the vaccine to Door County residents.
Those with cancelled appointments have been added to the department’s waitlist based on the date and time of the original appointment. There are about 1,200 people on the waitlist. Department staff will contact those on the list to set up new appointments. Those who received their first dose through public health will automatically receive their second dose.
According to a health department press release, “if you are one of the first 200 on our list and we do not reach you, we will leave a message with instruction on how to contact us to schedule your appointment. Once you receive your first dose at the vaccine site, your second dose appointments will be scheduled for you.”
As vaccines supplies improve the state is aiming to provide projections for two weeks out, which could make appointment scheduling easier.
New appointments for a first dose of the vaccine will not be available until a large portion of the waitlist is vaccinated and supplies improve. Door County Public Health and Door County Medical Center receive separate allotments each week and schedule separate clinics accordingly. If you have a question regarding an appointment with Door County Medical Center you should contact them directly.
