COVID-19 Vaccine Information
Burnett County and the State of Wisconsin are moving together through the Vaccine Phases that have been set forth by the Wisconsin State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee (SDMAC) to have as smooth of a vaccine roll-out as possible. These groups are being prioritized due to an increased risk of exposure or vulnerability to COVID-19.
The state of Wisconsin currently receives about 200,000 doses of vaccine each week and those doses need to be spread across the entire state. There will be lag time in getting everyone who is eligible and wants the vaccine to actually receive it. Thanks for your patience.
“We’re going to keep getting shots in arms as quickly as possible and as soon we have vaccines available,” said Gov. Tony Evers. “In the meantime, we have to continue working together to prevent the spread of this virus by wearing face coverings and limiting gatherings with others while we vaccinate folks across our state.”
Who is eligible?
Anyone ages 16 and older are now currently eligible in the state of Wisconsin.
- Pfizer approved for ages 16 +
- Moderna approved for ages 18 +
- Johnson & Johnson/Janssen approved for ages 18 +
