Don’t Forget: Get Vaccinated in Time for School

DHS encourages anyone age 12 and older to get their COVID-19 vaccination now, so they will be protected against COVID-19 in time for the 2021-2022 school year. For children ages 12 and up, the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is the only vaccine currently available for this age group. The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses, spaced 21 days apart. Anyone ages 18 and up is eligible for the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, which also requires two doses, spaced 28 days apart. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is also authorized for those ages 18 years and up, but only requires one dose. Full protection against the virus requires an additional two weeks after receiving the final dose for each of the three vaccines.

In order to be fully vaccinated by September 6, your child should receive their:

  • First dose of the Pfizer by August 2 
  • First dose of the Moderna by July 26 
  • Johnson & Johnson by August 23

Do you have COVID-19 symptoms? Have you been exposed? Get tested. 

People with COVID-19 can experience a range of symptoms. Most people have mild symptoms and are able to recover at home. Some may have severe symptoms that lead to hospitalization or death. If you feel sick, isolate yourself from others and get tested.  Door County Covid-19 Testing Sites

You may have COVID-19 if you have any of these symptoms:

  • Cough (new onset or worsening of chronic cough)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell

Not everyone with COVID-19 has these symptoms. For many, symptoms are mild, with no fever. Some people may also experience fatigue or gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or abdominal pain. You can still spread the virus to others even if you have mild or no symptoms.

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.
