GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Prevea Health is now taking walk ins at the COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the UW-Green Bay campus and some other locations.
Prevea President and CEO Dr. Ashok Rai made the announcement first on Action 2 News This Morning.

Here are the locations:
- Prevea Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at UW-Green Bay, Kress Events Center, 2358 Leon Bond Dr., Green Bay
- Prevea Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital, 855 S. Main St., Oconto Falls

- Prevea Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at Jacob’s Well Church, 3211 N. 50th Ave., Chippewa Falls
Dr. Rai says they have plenty of vaccine supply and hope this will make it easier for people to come in and get the shot.
“I look at this as phase three. Phase one was in the hospital, get the hospital staff, medical workers, EMTs vaccinated and we did that. Then mass vaccination to get a big population vaccinated as quickly as possible that were most at risk: our 65 and older, those with underlying chronic diseases, those that are in education. Now it’s everybody else. We have to keep making it easier to get vaccinated. That wasn’t easy in January because we didn’t have vaccine. Now we have plenty of vaccine, we want to make it easier. Starting today, you can go to UWGB, you can go to prevea.com/vaccine and you can see when we have walk-in times. Don’t need to make an appointment. Need to get vaccinated today? Please come in today,” says Dr. Rai.
As of April 21, 1.6 million Wisconsin residents had completed their vaccine series. That’s 28.1% of the eligible population.
Everyone age 16 and older is eligible to get the vaccine. The Pfizer shot is the only one approved for ages 16 and 17.
