Four More Vaccination Sites To Open In Wisconsin Including In Douglas County

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers says the Douglas County site will be split with Barron County.

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Wis. – Wisconsin is set to open four more vaccination clinics across the state including one in Douglas County.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers says the Douglas County site will be split with Barron County.

Those sites are expected to open within the next two months.

On Tuesday, Evers said although case numbers are down, we are not out of the woods just yet.

“Because folks, it’s all hands on deck. Just as they always do, Wisconsinites are stepping up helping out and doing their part to get our state back to some sort of normal,” he said.

Douglas County had its highest COVID-19 case numbers in November and December.

Health officials say as many of those people are approaching 90 days of immunity, the additional vaccine site could help keep up with the declining trend.

“Could people redevelop the disease again within this amount of time? We don’t know, but we don’t want that to happen,” said Kathy Ronchi, the health officer for Douglas County Health and Human Services. “We want that trend to continue decrease as it has been and with that vaccination is a huge strategy for all of us.”

The community-based clinic is expected to take place at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.

The clinic will only be available to eligible residents under vaccine priority groups.
