COVID-19 Vaccine Update:
Brie Goodin, Office of Preparedness and Emergency Health Care, Division of Public Health Wisconsin Department of Health Services

Recently, I shared COVID-19 vaccination resources from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) with you, and asked you to share them with your members and community partners. One of the resources I provided was a map that shows locations of vaccine providers.  DHS has decided to transition away from this map to a similar tool, VaccineFinder provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). VaccineFinder has additional features including: 

  • Vaccine type at each location (this will prove particularly useful for those ages 16-17 looking for Pfizer)  
  • Whether or not vaccine is in stock  
  • Days and hours of clinics 

If you or your community partners linked to the Map of Vaccine Providers webpage or embedded the DHS vaccine map on your website, you will need to update your page/link to VaccineFinder.org. We also encourage you share this new resources with your clients, members, or community partners.  

In addition, we recognize that you are a trusted voice within the community, and ask again for your assistance in sharing information about the COVID-19 vaccine. DHS has the following resources available for you: 

  • Suite of resources available to print and share with your community partners or post on your social media page and website. Resources are available in multiple languages.  
  • DHS staff are available to host webinars with groups to discuss vaccination concerns and questions or can train employers and community leaders to more confidently speak with employees and community members about vaccination.  

Please let me know if you would be interested in scheduling an event or vaccine confidence training, or if you have any questions. 

As a reminder, this vaccine is free to all persons age 16 or older, regardless of their insurance status, and anyone who lives, works, or studies in Wisconsin cannot be turned away from receiving a vaccine.   

Videos and print materials translated into multiple languages.
