A new billboard just north of Antigo is reminding everyone the importance of staying up to date on
vaccines and also receiving the new COVID-19 bivalent booster when eligible. “Staying up to date
on COVID-19 vaccines and boosters remain one of the most important ways to protect against
severe illness, hospitalization, and death”, said Donna Wiegert, Public Health Nurse, Langlade
County Health Department. “Last week Langlade County reached a sad milestone when 100
Langlade County residents lost their lives as a result of having COVID-19”, she added. The billboard
is a reminder that we now have safe and effective vaccines to help protect us and our families.
Recommendations to keep our community safe include:
• Stay up to date with vaccines and receive a booster when eligible.
• Get tested if you develop any symptoms of COVID-19 or if exposed to COVID-19.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Keep up to date on Langlade County’s community level. For more information on our
