DCMC Covid-19 Vaccination Update

In a recent press release from the Door County Medical Center, they announce that at this time they do not have a supply of COVID-19 vaccine to distribute to the community and they are currently not taking COVID-19 vaccination appointments. It goes on to say that there are many unknowns regarding the vaccines coming out, however the latest information indicates that healthcare workers and nursing home residents will be in the first group to receive the vaccine, and this will tentatively take place soon and through January. They are hopeful that they will have a supply of the vaccine for the general public in February. At that time, those receiving the vaccination before others include those over the age of 65 or those under 65 with chronic conditions putting them at risk for a severe case of COVID-19. These time frames are to the best of their knowledge at this time and could possibly change moving forward. They continue to recommend everyone follow the general COVID-19 safety measures, which of course include wearing a mask, social distancing, washing and sanitizing hands, staying home if you feel ill, and getting tested as necessary. The Door County Medical Center will notify the public when the vaccination opportunity arises and how to go about scheduling your appointment.
