Kewaunee County Public Health Reviews COVID-19 Vaccine Waiting List
KEWAUNEE, WI – The Kewaunee County Public Health Department is asking those who may have put themselves on the Public Health Department’s waiting list to receive the COVID-19 vaccine but have already received the vaccine elsewhere or happen to be scheduled to receive the vaccine elsewhere, to let them know as soon as possible.
The Health Department is currently reviewing its waiting list and finding that some individuals who are on the local list, no longer need their first dose.
“Currently, we have Kewaunee County Public Health Department staff calling those on our waiting list to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment and across all eligible groups, some of these individuals are informing us that they have already received the vaccine, and wherever you get the first dose that is where you will get the second,” said Cindy Kinnard, RN, Kewaunee County Public Health Department Director. “The COVID-19 vaccination supply is limited, so we need to be as accurate as possible with each week’s request and we determine our amount by looking at our waiting list.”
If you need to be removed from the Kewaunee County Public Health Department’s COVID-19 vaccine waiting list or if you are eligible to receive the vaccine and would like to be placed on the list, please call (920) 388-7160 or submit a request on the County website, www.kewauneeco.org through the Public Health page and click Contact Us.
Those who can currently be vaccinated include Phase 1A, which is Emergency Medical Services (EMS), fire, police, community-based residential facilities (CBRFs), staff at funeral homes, dental offices, and eye clinics. Also eligible, are those ages 65+ and most recently, staff at schools and childcare facilities.
To date, the Health Department has administered 2,169 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
