Wide-spread vaccination for COVID-19 is a critical tool to best protect everyone, especially those at highest risk, for severe illness and death. COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, free, and widely available. As we continue to see high case activity throughout the state, it’s also important that we all add layers of protection, like getting vaccinated (including booster dose), wearing masks when indoors in public places, and staying home when feeling sick.

CDC now recommends that certain people are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster shot, including those who received Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccines. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

For those who received Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, you are eligible for a booster no sooner than 6 months
after receiving your second dose if you are:

• 65 or older
• Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
• Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
• Age 18+ who work or live-in high-risk settings

For Example: if you received your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna on May 14, you are eligible to receive your booster on or after November 14. https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/vaccine-dose.htm

For those who received Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine and are aged 18 and older, a booster dose is recommended no sooner than 2 full months after receiving the first dose.

You may receive the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine (age 12 and up-- 1st dose, 2nd dose or booster) or Johnson and Johnson vaccine (age 18 and up –1st or booster) at one of our drive-thru clinics scheduled at the Emergency Services Building located at 916 North 14th Ave. Sturgeon Bay on one of the following dates:

• Wednesday, November 17, 2021 12:00pm – 5:30pm
• Thursday November 18, 2021 – 10:00am – 4:00pm

Appointments are required. To schedule an appointment visit bookdcph.timetap.com or call Public Health at 920-746-
7180 for assistance. Please note we will NOT have flu vaccine or vaccine for children age 5-11 available at these clinics.

To help expedite the process we ask that you do the following:
1. Wear short sleeves and have your arm readily accessible
2. Print and complete consent forms ahead of time. Forms can be found on our website at Door County COVID-19 Situation Update. Forms will be available at the site if not completed ahead of time.
3. Cloth Face coverings are required

Routine vaccination should be deferred for persons with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, regardless of symptoms, until criteria have been met for them to discontinue isolation. While mild illness is not a contraindication to vaccination, vaccination visits for these individuals should be postponed avoiding exposing healthcare personnel and other patients
to the virus that causes COVID-19

At-home collection kits are another type of COVID-19 test where you collect your own sample at home. While an at-home test may be convenient, it is important to note that a store-bought at-home test, where sample collection is not supervised by a health care provider, cannot be used for official public health decisions.

▪ A negative test result from a store-bought at-home test, where sample collection is not supervised by a health care provider, will not be accepted as a way to shorten quarantine.

▪ A positive test result from a store-bought at-home test, where sample collection is not supervised by a health care provider, will not be referenced to identify a 90-day period of possible immunity which would make you exempt from quarantine if you had close contact with someone with COVID-19.

Valid at-home tests supervised by a health care professional can be requested through DHS at no cost.

Door County Public Health is now providing COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics for children age 5-11

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends everyone ages 5 and older get a COVID-19 vaccine to help protect against COVID-19. Although children are at a lower risk of becoming severely ill with COVID-19 compared with adults, children can:

• Be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19
• Get very sick from COVID-19
• Have both short and long-term health complications from COVID-19
• Spread COVID-19 to others

Wide-spread vaccination for COVID-19 is a critical tool to best protect everyone, especially those at highest risk, for severe illness and death. COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, free, and widely available.

Door County Public Health has scheduled vaccine clinics specifically designed for children ages 5 – 11 years to receive their age-appropriate dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine is free of charge regardless of immigration or insurance status.

Appointments are required. A parent must sign the consent form and a responsible adult must accompany the minor to the vaccine appointment. To make an appointment go to bookdcph.timetap.com
