Wisconsin, and especially Door County, continues to charge rapidly forward in getting COVID-19 doses into the arms of residents. Statewide more than 78% of residents over the age of 65 have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 37% of all residents have one dose. In Door county those numbers are 89% and 54%, with 42% of all residents over the age of 18 now fully vaccinated. More than 15,000 Door County residents now have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and many more likely already have antibodies from contracting the virus earlier.
Door County Medical Center has opened up vaccination appointments to all adults over the age of 18, and Door County Public Health has opened appointments to all adults over the age of 16.
Individuals do not need to be an existing patient at DCMC to make a vaccination appointment. DCMC is offering the Moderna vaccine this week. Public Health will have both the Pfizer and Johnson and Johnson vaccines.
“Door County Public Health has received confirmation of our vaccine allotment for next week and will again receive both the Pfizer and Johnson and Johnson vaccines,” said a Friday update from Public Health. “We know some people want a choice of vaccine and we are now offering this at the time of scheduling. We have been told that at least through April the supply of Johnson and Johnson in Wisconsin will be limited. This means very few Johnson and Johnson appointments for our clinics over the next 3 weeks.
Appointments for both brands will be filled on a first come first served basis. If your preferred vaccine is not available, you will not see it as an option online. Pfizer is the only vaccine currently approved for age 16-18. Please be sure to pick this brand for those under the age of 18. All minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at the clinic.
To schedule an appointment for your COVID-19 vaccine go to www.bookdcph.timetap.com. If you do not have access to the internet or need assistance in scheduling/rescheduling, you may contact Public Health at 920.746.7180 for assistance. If you are scheduling a Pfizer Vaccine, your second dose will be scheduled for you at the clinic. All vaccines provided by Door County Public Health are free of charge and no insurance information is collected.
Though appointments are open to all adults, that does not guarantee that vaccine supply will be available. Appointments for vaccinations may not be available when individuals log on, but Public Health encourages individuals to check back often to see if appointments open up as vaccine supply is confirmed.
Nationally the number of vaccines administered surpassed 4 million in a single day April 10, with 4,629,928 doses administered. The seven-day average is now over 3.1 million doses per day.
