COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The vaccine is available in 4 phases in Wisconsin. In Milwaukee, we are currently in Phase 1A, which includes health care workers and long term care facilities. As of January 25, some Phase 1B (police officers, fire fighters, and people over 65 years of age) will be eligible. As soon as we get vaccines to do so, we will begin vaccinating our established patients 65+. Due to the limited number of vaccines we will have each week, we will be calling our patients 65+ to schedule an appointment as vaccines become available in order of oldest to youngest. Please do NOT call to schedule an appointment as we will be given a very limited supply and will not be able to schedule you yet. Please check here for updates.

Phase 1A - Healthcare Personnel; Long term care facilities (personnel and residents)
Phase 1B - 65+ years of age; Police and firefighters; Essential workers
Phase 1C - Other essential workers; Individuals with high-risk medical conditions
Phase 2 - General populations

More information about phases can be found here.

Health Equity Summit:
Empower a Healthier Milwaukee

 

Canceled

We’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our rescheduled 2020 Health Equity Summit; Empower a Healthier Milwaukee due to COVID-19 related precautions and restrictions around large gatherings. We appreciate your interest and are disappointed that it will not take place as planned.
We will be holding a Health Equity Summit in the spring of 2021 that will include the previously planned conversation on empowerment along with other dynamic topics under the broader umbrella of health equity innovation. Although we plan to hold the 2021 Summit in person, we acknowledge the significant uncertainties we face and are prepared to adapt quickly if needed.
