OCHD announces plans for vaccines
Star Journal Report
Along with area health care systems and local pharmacies, the Oneida County Health Department (OCHD) announced it will be working to provide COVID-19 vaccine to people age 65 and older beginning next week.
Stated in a press release, “Currently, the demand for vaccine in Wisconsin far exceeds the amount of vaccine available each week and possible prioritization with the 65 and above group may be necessary, based on demographics and medical conditions.”
To sign up for a vaccine with the health department, visit the department website. As vaccine is received, people who have completed the sign up form will be contacted with a date to receive their vaccine.
