COVID-19 Vaccine Update:
The Kewaunee County Public Health Department will begin administering doses of COVID-19 vaccine during the week of March 7, 2021 to people enrolled in Medicaid long term care programs. The health department will continue to contact any eligible individuals on the Phase 1A (Emergency Medical Services (EMS), fire, police, community-based residential facilities (CBRFs), staff at funeral homes, dental offices, and eye clinics), 65+ waiting lists and staff at schools and childcare facilities to receive their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine as well as administer second doses of vaccine to those in these groups when additional vaccines are available.
Due to limited vaccination supply being received by the Kewaunee County Public Health Department, those who are eligible to get the vaccine and are not scheduled for an appointment are encouraged to contact their healthcare provider.
If you would like to be placed on the waiting list to receive the COVID-19 vaccine or need to be removed from the waiting list because you have received the vaccine elsewhere, call the Kewaunee County Public Health Department at (920) 388-7160 or submit a request via the “Contact Us” link.
NOTE: If you have submitted or are planning to submit a request to be placed on the waiting list to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, when eligible, it may take up to 10 business days for the Kewaunee County Public Health Department to contact you. Due to high interest, once your request is made, please do not reach out to the Kewaunee County Public Health Department as a staff member will call when you are eligible and a vaccine is available. It is important that you answer when called as vaccines are time sensitive and will be administered on a first come, first served basis. If you miss the call from the Kewaunee County Public Health Department, please do not call them back. You will remain on the waiting list, and our staff will call you back when another dose is available. If you have reached out elsewhere for a vaccine and are scheduled to receive it, please notify the Kewaunee County Public Health Department as soon as possible to be removed from their wait list. Finally, please know that the Kewaunee County Public Health Department is doing their best to accommodate all requests and asks for patience during this time. Thank You.
