Gov. Evers to Visit DHS Community-Based Vaccination Clinic in La Crosse County on Opening Day
MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) today announced that Evers will meet with educators and local leaders for the opening day of the community-based vaccination clinic in La Crosse County on March 9. The La Crosse County site will be the second DHS community-based vaccination clinic in Wisconsin.
“The clinic in La Crosse County builds on the success we have seen in Rock County and comes at a critical time to provide more access to available vaccine as we continue to expand eligibility,” said Gov. Evers. “Every day we are closer than yesterday to reaching community-wide immunity and getting back to our Wisconsin way of life, and I want to thank all the folks working at our community-based sites for getting this done.”
All eligible individuals who are to be vaccinated at the DHS community-based vaccination clinics must 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.
DHS community-based clinics are operated by AMI Expeditionary Healthcare through collaboration with the University of Wisconsin System, local public health departments, 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.
