Here's how to get the coronavirus vaccine if you're 65 or older and live in Washington or Ozaukee counties

By Evan Casey - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Wisconsin health officials are making COVID-19 vaccine shots available to anyone age 65 and older starting on Monday, Jan. 25.

Here's how Washington and Ozaukee County residents 65 and older can register for an email distribution list to learn more about getting the vaccine. 

  • Go to the public health department webpage at
  • Below the "Mission" and "Vision" banners you will see the "Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Updates" banner.
  • Where it says "If you are 65 years of age or older, please complete this form," click on the hyperlink included in the word "form."
  • That link will take you to another webpage. You can also click on this link to find the form.

Once on the form webpage, which is titled "Vaccination Distribution Contact List," you can fill out your name, email, phone number, age group, employer name and job title.

After you fill in that information click on "submit."

It's important to note that submitting the form won't immediately register you for an appointment to get the vaccine. Rather, every Monday, when the health department finds out how many doses of the vaccine they received from the state, they'll send another email to some residents so they can then register for an actual appointment.

If residents ages 65 and older don't have internet access, they can call the health department and request to get signed up for alerts. The phone number for the Port Washington office is 262-284-8170, while the West Bend office phone number is 262-335-4462.

Kirsten Johnson, the director of the Washington Ozaukee Public Health Department, said the department is working on updating their registration system. They're also telling residents to check their website first if they have any questions about the vaccine rollout.

Rotary Million Dollar Journey Reaches its Goal … and Continues

After reaching a $1,000,000 fundraising goal early, Rotary International Districts 6220 & 6270 extend the goal deadline and dollar amount to support the Rotary Foundation during trying times

A joint effort between the Wisconsin & Michigan Rotarians of districts 6220 and 6270 to raise $1,000,000 for the Rotary Foundation by October, 2020 reached its goal four months early. With that success, and with even greater need, the districts will continue the journey by raising more funds, and a new conclusion in April, 2021.

A bit over one year ago, on the recommendation of Rotary International District Governors Steve Handrick and Steen Sanderhoff, their respective districts embarked on a path to collectively raise one million dollars of new gifts to the Rotary Foundation; a Million Dollar Journey. With many generous gifts – each in excess of $10,000 – from both districts, the goal was reached early, in July of 2020.

When the Journey launched, the districts planned a celebratory dinner for all of the contributors along the fundraising pathway, to have taken place in November 2020. The presence of the COVID-19 pandemic will make that celebration impossible at that time, and the districts agreed that it should be postponed until April 29, 2021.

Seeing the postponement as an opportunity, now past-governors Handrick & Sanderhoff and current district governors Scott Knaffla and Craig Burnett agreed that the districts should continue the Journey’s effort, and have set a new goal of $2,000,000 to be reached by April 1, 2021.

As with the first part of the Journey, the minimum amount of gifts within the journey is $10,000 to qualify for attendance at the celebratory dinner. Gifts may be made in a number of ways:

  • Outright gifts of cash or appreciated securities
  • A three-year pledge of cash or appreciated securities
  • A Life income agreement funded with cash, appreciated securities or real estate, including charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, or pooled income funds.
  • A bequest commitment via a will, life insurance policy, revocable trust, or a retirement plan

Each district has a team of Rotarians who stand ready to discuss the continuing campaign, give a presentation about the journey, or to interact directly with a potential donor. Donors or clubs are encouraged to contact PDG and Endowment/Major Gifts Advisor Nancy Rhodes to discuss the opportunity to add needed funds to the Rotary International Foundation during this time of pandemic and worldwide economic challenge.

Rotarians and others are encouraged to join in this important Journey at a time when it is truly needed.

Reimagining Travel in the 21st Century
Reimagining Travel in the 21st Century

Aziz Abu Sarah  proposes that travel needs a reset and now is the time to learn how it can be harnessed as a force for good to help bring together our polarized world. And, we can start now, right outside our front doors. 

Aziz is no stranger to injustice.  His journey from radical seeking revenge to peacemaker seeking reconciliation led to an innovative method of peacemaking and co-founding of a global business—harnessing the transformative, healing power of travel. Starting in his own divided hometown of Jerusalem he originated  the dual narrative™ a unique kind of tourism to bring people together across some of the world's deepest divides, including Colombia, Vietnam, Venezuela, Syria and others.  

In his book Crossing Boundaries: A Traveler's Guide to World Peace he shows how by crossing boundaries—near and far—we can help heal our world from stereotypes, racial prejudice, and ignorance.
