Calumet County—in partnership with Ascension Calumet Hospital and St. Martin Lutheran Church—has opened a public vaccination clinic at St. Martin Lutheran Church, 717 Memorial Dr. in Chilton. The clinic is typically open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, dependent on the availability of vaccine doses.
At this time, appointments are being offered to people aged 65 and older, frontline health care professionals, and police and fire personnel. No walk-ins will be accepted. Please check the DHS website for the latest on who is eligible to receive a vaccine.
Eligible recipients can schedule their appointment online (preferred method) at www.calumetcounty.org/COVID-19 beginning every Monday at 10 a.m. They also can call (920) 849-1466 to schedule with a staff member at that time. Please note that during registration long wait times and delays are expected because of the extraordinary number of incoming phone calls. Messages on the registration line will not be returned.
“We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Ascension Calumet, and others in our community, in offering this important vaccination clinic to the public,” said Todd Romenesko, Calumet County administrator. “The ability to share resources and work together is critical in safely and effectively providing vaccines to our residents.”
He added, “Public Health has been receiving a limited supply of vaccines, and in turn, the clinic can only offer a small number of appointments at this time. We anticipate our supply to increase in the coming months. Until that time, we greatly appreciate your patience.”
Bonnie Kolbe, Calumet County Health officer, said, “The effort to provide COVID-19 vaccines for those ages 65 and older is very important as they are our most vulnerable population. Our goal is to expand the availability of vaccination appointments weekly; however, that will be dependent on the number of vaccines we receive.”
