Vaccine

WISCONSIN — Beginning Monday, Jan. 25, those ages 65 and older will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination in Wisconsin.

The Department of Health Services estimates that this includes approximately 700,000 Wisconsinites, whereas the state only receives around 70,000 first-dose vaccines per week from the federal government.

To receive the vaccine, individuals will need to go though their health care provider, pharmacy or public health agency. Residents and staff at long-term care facilities will continue to be vaccinated at their facility partnership.

Vaccination sites available:

Prevea Health — Vaccinations are currently being done at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital. Beginning Feb. 4, Prevea will have a clinic at UW-Green Bay Sheboygan Campus. Appointments are required and can be made at myprevea.com.

Lakeshore Community Health Care — Patients and community members without a regular primary care provider can go to lakeshorechc.org/covid-19 to sign up to receive the vaccine. Once registered, a staff member will reach out to schedule your appointment.

Advocate Aurora Health — Appointments are being scheduled through the LiveWell app or online at aah.org/myadvocateaurora

Meijer Pharmacy — To register, text COVID to 75049 or visit clinic.meijer.com. Pharmacy staff can also assist with registration.

Sheboygan Internal Medicine Associates has not yet received an allotment of vaccines, so patients are encouraged to use the above community options at this time.

To have information sent directly to you on how to register to be vaccinated with a provider, sign up with the department here. This is not a waitlist, but rather a way to receive information directly sent to you.
