(WFRV) – Nine local health care systems and public health departments released a joint statement asking local communities to do four things.

The statement came from the following organizations:

  • Brown County Public Health
  • Oneida Nation Health Department
  • City of De Pere Health Department
  • Advocate Aurora Health/Aurora BayCare
  • Bellin Health
  • Prevea Health and HSHS St. Vincent/St. Mary’s Hospitals
  • Door County Medical Center
  • Holy Family Memorial
  • N.E.W. Community Clinic

With more people being eligible for the vaccine, all the local health care systems and public health departments are asking their communities to do the following:

  • Have patience. There will be enough supply for those who wish to be vaccinated in the coming weeks.
  • Be persistent in checking for appointment availability as new slots open on a regular basis.
  • Plan to get vaccinated. The more people that are vaccinated, the sooner the communities can get back to ‘normal.’
  • Until communities reach a point where most of the population is vaccinated, people should continue to wear masks and social distance.
