Lucky to be old? UW-Green Bay Alumna details COVID-19 vaccination experience| Wisconsin State Farmer

UW-Green Bay alumna Susan Manzke ’09 (adult returning student) was nervous about her vaccination appointment at the Prevea vaccination site on the Green Bay Campus…

“So I worried. First, would the weather cooperate? Second, would I find my way to the correct building? Would there be a long line? Would there be a long wait? … Just too many things for me to think about before my appointment…

Her experience turned out not to be worth the worry and she chronicled it in a column for the Wisconsin State Farmer.

GREEN BAY – Close to 1,000 people are expected to get COVID-19 vaccinations Tuesday at the Prevea Health clinic on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus, according to Dr. Ashok Rai, CEO of Prevea Health. A statewide push to vaccinate people ages 65 and older began Monday after the state announced on Jan. 19 that age group was now eligible for the shots. Prevea Health has been vaccinating people 65 and up since Wednesday because it had allotments available at the time of the announcement for people in that age group, Rai said. Bellin Health also reported a high demand in appointments last week and urged patience as more slots open up. While most of the Brown County’s recent cases remain highest among people in their 20s, most of the 190 Brown County residents who died due to the virus were 70 or older, according to DHS data.
