Covid-19 Vaccine phases and eligibility

Have you received your COVID-19 Vaccine yet?! Don’t worry DHS is working to get the vaccine to all Wisconsin’s residents. However, our main targets are senior residents and health care providers; since they are the most people at risk. We assure you that The State of Wisconsin is absolutely committed to the equitable and fair distribution of the vaccine.

For more information about the federal prioritization guidelines please visit Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP)(link is external) and the State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee (SDMAC).

Where can you get vaccinated?

COVID-19 Vaccine is pretty much like any other vaccine; there are many options where you can get it from; including health care providers, pharmacies, local health departments, places of employment, and community-based vaccination sites.
