Schedule Your First Dose Vaccine Appointment
Wisconsin’s Department of Health Services recently announced that starting Monday, April 5, everyone aged 16 years and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. If you are 16 years old or older, schedule your appointment for a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine using this online form.
Online will be the fastest and most up-to-date way to schedule, but if you are having difficulties please call (608) 720-5295. Please note, there may be long wait times. We recommend accessing the online scheduling form from a computer instead of a mobile device in order to ensure the best usability experience.
If there are no appointments currently available, please check back on the website as we will add appointments regularly as more vaccine doses become available. Like many health care providers, we are currently experiencing low vaccine supply. As our supply grows, so will our number of available appointments.
If you have questions about the vaccine, please review our Frequently Asked Questions page on our website. If you would like to be considered for a same-day appointment if someone cancels, please fill out this same-day call form.
Individuals 16 years and older can access vaccine through a variety of options, including community-based clinics, health care providers, Local and Tribal Health Departments, and pharmacies. Visit the Wisconsin COVID-19 vaccine options page or call the toll free vaccine hotline at 1-844-684-1064 to learn more.
In the meantime, it is important to continue wearing masks, staying physically distant, washing hands, and getting tested if you have symptoms as ways to stop the spread of COVID-19.

If you need to schedule your second dose, please do the following:

Vaccine Scheduling Dashboard
We are committed to getting our patients and our community vaccinated as quickly as possible based on supply and scheduling capacity. The demand for the COVID-19 vaccine is running very high in our community, and the supply we have received from the state is just a small fraction of what we have requested.
What to Know Before You Schedule
|You are going to be traveling for a significant amount of time (such as moving to a winter home out of state)||Make sure you will be in town for the first and second dose of the vaccine. Second doses are given no sooner than 21 days after the first dose. You must receive both doses from the same health care provider.|
|You are allergic to an ingredient in the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, which includes:|
– Polyethylene glycol
– Polyoxyl 35 castor oil
|Contact your primary care provider.|

|You received an immunization other than the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine in the last 2 weeks, or plan to receive an immunization after your first or second dose of the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine||Starting 2 weeks before your first dose until 2 weeks after your second dose of the COVID vaccine, you should not receive any other immunizations.|
*Exceptions include the unexpected need for immunization such as tetanus (after injury) or rabies (from exposure).
|You received monoclonal antibody therapy or convalescent plasma as part of your treatment for a past COVID infection||Schedule your COVID vaccine at least 90 days after your treatment.|
