Safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines are an important tool in stopping the spread of the virus. Even with vaccine distribution beginning, it will still take months to reach community immunity. We must continue to stay home, wear a mask, physically distance, and practice good hand hygiene.
As COVID19 vaccines become more readily available in the Manitowoc County area, the Manitowoc County Health Department is shifting its focus from mass vaccination clinics to community and employer-based clinics and the homebound. Other community health care providers will continue to focus on community mass vaccine efforts.
If your organization could be served by a mobile vaccination clinic, please contact the Manitowoc County Health Department or (920) 683-4155.
