St. Croix County Wisconsin Public Health Department plans to vaccinate teenage health care workers later this week in their battle against COVID-19.

“Some days it feels like we just started, some days it’s like ‘When is this going to be over and how can we be going at this pace?,'” said Kelli Engen, public health administrator for the county.

Later this week, Engen’s office will administer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to some of the county’s younger residents.
