Guide to making an appointment for COVID-19 vaccine
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Local health care systems are encouraging people to be patient as more people become eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
The state is vaccinating frontline health care workers, police, fire, EMS, adults 65 and older, nursing home residents and staff, people in education and child care, some public-facing essential workers, people in congregate settings, people in Medicaid long-term programs, public transit, food supply chain, and non-frontline health care essential workers. CLICK HERE for the full list of those eligible for the vaccine.
Two doses are required for the Pfizer and Moderna shots -- 21 days between shots for the Pfizer vaccine, 28 days between shots for the Moderna vaccine.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires a single dose. At the time of this writing, Wisconsin’s allocation of Johnson & Johnson vaccine is reserved for educators.
YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT FOR AN APPOINTMENT. Demand is high and vaccine supply may be limited. Again, health care officials are encouraging everyone to be patient. You could be placed on a waiting list. Do not expect to get an immediate appointment.
The vaccine is not available to everyone. The state determines groups that are eligible in phases. CLICK HERE to find out if you’re eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
