COVID-19 Vaccine Roll-out to the Community Update
The COVID-19 vaccination continues to be distributed to the community in a series of phases due to vaccine supply. While the vaccine supply is limited right now, this phased approach allows for priority groups to receive vaccine first.
The current priority groups includes health care workers and long-term care staff and residents, police-fire-correctional institute personnel, and individuals age 65 and older. These specific populations are determined by the WI Department of Health Services who follow CDC and ACIP and SDMAC (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and Wisconsin’s State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee) recommendations and requirements. The local health care systems and public health departments provide vaccinations to these groups as directed by the WI Department of Health Services.
This week, Crawford County Public Health has received 100 doses for first vaccinations and 70 doses for second vaccinations. We are scheduling individuals into clinics from our current waiting list.
