COVID-19 Vaccine Updates - Door County

Door County is working diligently with our community partners to provide vaccine safely and effectively to our community.  

Door County Public Health's online scheduling system is now open.  We are allowing self-scheduling of appointments and vaccine choice (based on availability) at the time of scheduling.  There will be times when there are no appointments available because the upcoming clinic is full or we have not yet received our allotment and opened up our full capacity.  If this happens please check back.  We will open more appointments as soon as we are able.


To schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment go to www.bookdcph.timetap.com   If you do not have access to internet, need assistance in scheduling/rescheduling, or have questions regarding your appointment or the vaccine you may contact our office at 920-746-7180 for assistance.

We are now accepting online scheduling of appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine. You will schedule your first dose only at this time. Your 2nd dose will be scheduled at the time you receive your first. 

All Wisconsin residents age 16 and older are now eligible to receive the vaccine. You must be 18 years or older to receive the Johnson and Johnson Vaccine. All minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Due to the high volume of our clinics we are unable to accept vaccine preference requests prior to the clinic.  When you arrive at your scheduled appointment time, you will be offered a choice of vaccine.  We will make every effort to accommodate your preference, while supplies last.  Vaccine is limited to availability.

NEW! Quarantine Guidelines from the CDC and Wisconsin Department of Health Services

**Please note: The best practice for COVID-19 prevention remains a full 14-day quarantine. The modifications are intended to be used with individuals who can reliably report their symptoms and are not in high-risk settings. There is increased risk with any modification from the 14-day quarantine. We ask and strongly recommend that all schools (students and staff), day care agencies, and other congregate settings adhere to the full 14-day quarantine.
Quarantine modifications are not acceptable for long-term care facilities.
