Vaccines continue to go out in Dickinson, Iron counties

Appointments filled in a matter of minutes, officials say

ESCANABA — The latest round of scheduling for COVID-19 vaccinations in Dickinson and Iron counties filled within a matter of minutes Wednesday morning, the district health department reported.

The Dickinson-Iron District Health Department set the start for signing up at 10 a.m., both online and by telephone, but announced before the hour was out that all coronavirus vaccine doses had been allocated due to strong demand.

The agency recommended checking its website at www.didhd.org for cancellations. Otherwise, the DIDHD does not plan to do any more scheduling until it can “secure more doses.” The supply that comes to the county each week now is divided between the health department and other area health care providers.

The DIDHD had its second vaccination clinic Friday in both counties. An appointment was required, however, to receive the shot.
