COVID-19 Vaccine Announcement
January 14, 2021
We continue to work with the Iowa County Health Department to use the COVID -19 vaccines on hand to vaccinate those who fall into group 1A, and we anxiously await word from the State of Wisconsin that allows us to order vaccines for group 1B.
Once that green light is given by the state, we have plans in place to quickly coordinate with Iowa County Health to begin vaccinating group 1B. Unfortunately, we are restricted to the timeline and defined groups that the Wisconsin Department of Health Services sets forth. A violation of that plan could mean a penalty of not being allowed to order more vaccines. We aren’t willing to take that risk and delay vaccinations for our community.
Please watch this page, the Iowa County Health Department, and the local media for word on when Phase 1B will begin. We plan to push out word in every way possible, with instructions for you on who to call and where to go for your immunizations!
December 14, 2020, Updated December 30, 2020
The first vaccine shipment has started to be given to healthcare workers who have frequent face-to-face contact with a variety of patients. Next, the Iowa County Health department will work with local nursing homes to coordinate vaccinations for their residents and additional healthcare workers.
When our vaccine supply allows, we will announce how and where to get vaccinated. Patients with risk factors for severe illness will be offered the vaccine first.
We appreciate your ongoing efforts at masking, handwashing and physical distancing while we await the full distribution of the vaccine.
Until the vaccine is more widely available, these resources may be helpful in educating yourself about the vaccine.
We are doing our part to keep you safe and healthy.
