KENOSHA — Update: The COVID-19 vaccine shipment, which had been delayed, is now expected to arrive by Wednesday morning. Kenosha County Public Health says its community vaccination clinics will be held Wednesday afternoon and as originally scheduled on Thursday and Friday. Those are by appointment only for vaccine-eligible individuals who live work or study in Kenosha County.

Previous story: Kenosha County Division of Health has temporarily halted administering COVID-19 vaccines because of a shipping delay affecting providers across Wisconsin.

The county has been administering vaccines at the Kenosha County Job Center, at 8600 Sheridan Rd. in Kenosha.

The health department announced on social media Monday afternoon that they will notify those who have appointments that are affected by the delay.

Vaccine shipments have been delayed across the country due to fuel issues caused by the weeks-long cold snap and record amounts of snowfall.
