Gov. Evers, DHS Announce Community-Based Vaccination Clinic in Racine County Opens March 23
Third DHS community-based vaccination clinic to open
MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced today that the community-based vaccination clinic in Racine County will open March 23. The Racine County site will be the third DHS community-based vaccination clinic in Wisconsin.
“As more Wisconsinites become eligible for the vaccine later this month, it’s important that we continue to bring these community-based clinics online to get as many people vaccinated as possible to reach community immunity,” said Gov. Evers. “These vaccination clinics help support local vaccine access and ensure that anyone currently eligible gets their shot.”
All eligible individuals who are to be vaccinated at the DHS community-based vaccination clinics must pre-register for an appointment through the Wisconsin COVID-19 Vaccine Registry. After registration, eligible individuals will be notified of the opportunity to schedule their appointment. For vaccine-related questions and registration support, individuals can call toll-free at (844) 684-1064. For more information on available COVID-19 vaccination options, visit the Where can I get vaccinated? webpage.
The DHS community-based clinic in Racine County is operated by AMI Expeditionary Healthcare through collaboration with Central Racine County Health Department, City of Racine Public Health Department, Racine County Emergency Operations Center, and other local partners. Locations are selected to address gaps in vaccine access and support vaccination efforts. Various factors including population demographics, local health capacity, operations, and concentration of other vaccine providers are taken into consideration when planning for clinics.
Other DHS community-based vaccination clinics include Rock County that opened on February 16, and La Crosse County that opened on March 9. Since February 16, the Rock County location has administered 3,833 vaccine doses.
