GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Local health care systems are encouraging people to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine. Everyone 16 and older is eligible for a vaccine in Wisconsin; the state is no longer restricting vaccinations to people with certain medical conditions or professions.

State health officials are encouraging people to use the CDC’s Vaccine Finder, saying finding and making an appointment should be a little easier with this online tool.

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.

CLICK HERE to track vaccination numbers in Wisconsin.

APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED UNLESS A WALK-IN CLINIC IS SPECIFICALLY INDICATED. DO NOT SHOW UP WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT.

Free transportation is available to COVID-19 vaccine appointments in Calumet, Outagamie and Winnebago counties for residents of those counties. Details can be found at the end of this article.
