Populations currently eligible for the COVID vaccine include frontline health care personnel; residents in skilled nursing and long-term care facilities; police, fire personnel, and correctional staff; and adults age 65 and older. The vaccine supply remains limited in Wisconsin.

The City of Racine Health Department serves Wind Point residents.  You can find information online at https://www.racinecoronavirus.org/racine-covid19-vaccine. You may sign up for email updates when appointments are available, as well as find information about other local vaccinators who may have availability.  Vaccine allocations continue to be limited, so appointment availability is low.

Health care providers are helping vaccinate those in Phase 1A. For residents ages 65+ who have a local doctor, your local healthcare provider will be reaching out to you. Most health care providers are asking their patients to please not call hospitals or their doctor’s office to try and schedule a vaccine appointment. You can visit your provider’s website for more instructions.

Please note that there are 28,822 people in Racine County and 700,000 people in Wisconsin who fall into the 65 and older age group.  Wisconsin is only receiving about 70,000 first does per week, so not everyone in the 65 and older age group will be able to vaccinated immediately.  We appreciate everyone’s patience.

It will likely be spring 2021 before a vaccine is available to the general public.  In the meantime, COVID-19 continues to spread in our community.  Please make sure that you prevent the spread by:

  • Avoiding close contact with people you do not live with
  • Wear a mask
  • Wash you hands often
  • Stay home if you feel sick
