COVID-19 Vaccinations for 159’ers

Public-Facing Essential Workers are eligible to get vaccinated now (scroll down to recent post, “Local 159: Time to Bare an Arm!”). Why wait, visit the Wisconsin DHS registry, and sign up today.

All Wisconsinites age 16+ are eligible for the vaccine as of April 5. There are now also seven new pharmacy chains offering vaccines. If you have not been vaccinated, and are not signed up, there has never a better time to sign up.
