As COVID-19 cases are rising again around the country, Governor Tony Evers announced on March 30 that all Wisconsinites aged 16 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine beginning Monday, April 5.
Though the vaccine supply is arriving at a steady pace, Evers calls for patience as some areas of the state may have a higher demand for vaccinations and may have wait lists.
To find a local vaccine provider, visit the COVID-19 vaccine provider map at vaccinefinder.org. Individuals can also call the toll-free vaccine hotline at 1-844-684-1064 with questions or help registering for a vaccination appointment. The hotline is also available in Hindi, Hmong, Somali, and Spanish.
Wisconsin reached a milestone on March 29 of 1 million fully vaccinated and leads the nation in being one of the most efficient vaccinators for getting available shots in arms, according to a press release from the governor’s office. Because of the accelerated vaccination pace in recent weeks, the state is able to push the eligibility date four weeks earlier than expected.
