After initial success, the Regional Vaccine Tour, a partnership with the Wisconsin National Guard and the public health departments from Calumet, Outagamie, and Winnebago counties, will be extended an additional two weeks at five of the locations. The tour, which now continues until September 2, focuses on making access to the COVID-19 vaccine more convenient in rural areas throughout the Fox Valley region.
"Cases are on the rise and vaccination is our best way to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and the Delta variant," stated Doug Gieryn, director/health office for the Winnebago County Health Department. "We also continue to encourage everyone, vaccinated and unvaccinated, to mask up in all indoor public settings and crowded outdoor venues."
“As the Delta variant continues its spread in our county, region, and state, it is more urgent than ever to get vaccinated. We are asking everyone to continue to do their part in our communities to help stop the transmission,” said Natalie Vandeveld, public health officer/manager for Outagamie County Public Health. “Vaccination continues to be our best tool against COVID-19. They are safe, effective against hospitalization and death, and are available throughout our communities at sites like these or through pharmacies and healthcare providers.”
