Oconto County to Hold COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic for Individuals in Phase 1A
Oconto County Public Health (OCPH) will administer COVID-19 vaccine to individuals in phase 1A as defined by the Wisconsin State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee (SDMAC), including police and fire personnel. At this time, COVID-19 vaccines are not available for the general public.
The COVID-19 vaccine clinic for those in phase 1A will be held Tuesday, January 26, 2021 in Oconto by appointment only.
Appointments for those in phase 1A are required and can be made by calling 920-834-6846. Appointments will not be made for those outside of phase 1A. Individuals without an appointment will be turned away at the clinic. Please do not call if you are not in phase 1A. The clinic is dependent on vaccine and staffing availability. If changes are needed, information will be shared on the Oconto County COVID-19 website at www.ocontocountycovid.info; Oconto County a Place for You on Facebook and through media press releases.
The COVID-19 vaccine requires two doses. Appointments for the second dose will be made for clinic participants before they leave this clinic.
“We understand that many people are anxious to receive COVID-19 vaccine,” stated Debra Konitzer, Oconto County Health Officer. “Oconto County Public Health has been and will continue to work closely with our partners to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine following state and federal guidelines. We ask for your patience as we move through this process. As the vaccine is not widely available yet, we continue to emphasize the importance of avoiding gatherings, wearing a mask in public, keeping 6 feet of distance between you and others in public, washing your hands frequently, and staying home when sick, on isolation or quarantine, and while waiting for COVID-19 test results.”
