Earlier this week, Wisconsin started vaccinating people who are 65 and older.

But Northwoods residents who have been vaccinated through a pharmacy program like Trig’s or Hometown Pharmacy are a lucky few.

When federal and state governments started enrolling pharmacies to administer the COVID-19 vaccine, Trig’s jumped on board.

Jeff Suppon, Trig’s director of pharmacy, estimates Trig’s has vaccinated about 1,000 residents in long-term care facilities over the past month.
