COVID-19 Vaccine Information
Door County Public Health COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics for children age 5-11
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends everyone ages 5 and older get a COVID-19 vaccine to help protect against COVID-19. Although children are at a lower risk of becoming severely ill with COVID-19 compared with adults, children can:
• Be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19
• Get very sick from COVID-19
• Have both short and long-term health complications from COVID-19
• Spread COVID-19 to others
Wide-spread vaccination for COVID-19 is a critical tool to best protect everyone, especially those at highest risk, for severe illness and death. COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, free, and widely available.
Door County Public Health has scheduled vaccine clinics specifically designed for children ages 5 – 11 years to receive their age-appropriate dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine is free of charge regardless of immigration or insurance status. Appointments are required. A parent must sign the consent form and a responsible adult must accompany the minor to the vaccine appointment. The clinic dates and time below are for children age 5-11 only.

COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose-Who is Eligible for a Booster Dose?
Everyone who is 18 years or older is eligible to get a booster dose.
To further explain the 6 month timing, if you received your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna on May 14, for example, you are not eligible to receive your booster until on or after November 14.
Additionally, eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
Door County Public Health has Pfizer and J&J brands of COVID-19 vaccine. We do not have Moderna vacccine; some other COVID vaccinators in the community are able to provide Moderna.
