KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) --- Kenosha County Public Health's COVID-19 vaccine clinics are moving from the Job Center to the former Shopko building next week.
Beginning Wednesday, March 10, clinics will be held at 5300 52nd Street in Kenosha.
The new facility will be able to accommodate vaccinations of up to 2,700 people per day, according to Kenosha County Health Officer Dr. Jen Freiheit. The former site could host about 1,000 daily.
This comes as the state expanded its COVID-19 vaccine eligibility guidelines on Monday to include more individuals, including education and child care workers, grocery store employees and non-frontline essential health care personnel.
As of Tuesday, 15.3% of Kenosha's population had received at least one of the two vaccine doses, and 8.5% were fully vaccinated.
