Open to everyone 16 and older: Several local sites offering vaccine

Coronavirus Outbreak

All individuals 16 and older are now able to schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments, and Gundersen Health System and Mayo Clinic Health System urge patients to get their shots wherever they are most quickly able to get in, and to get whichever incarnation is available.

Currently approved vaccines include the two dose versions from Pfizer and Moderna, and the single-shot version from Johnson and Johnson. All have proven safe and effective in preventing death, hospitalizations and severe COVID-19 illness, Gundersen notes.

Gundersen and Mayo notify patients via online patient portal, phone or mailed letter when they are able to make an appointment for vaccination.

Parents or guardians of Gundersen patients age 16-17, who are only eligible for the Pfizer vaccine, must call 608-775-6829 to schedule their child’s vaccination appointment. Gundersen patients wishing to be vaccinated at the Onalaska clinic can call 608-775-6829. Appointments are also available at Gundersen Critical Access Hospitals and regional locations.

Mayo patients unable to schedule their vaccine appointment online can call 608-392-7400. In addition to La Crosse, Mayo offers vaccinations at its Prairie du Chien, Sparta and Arcadia facilities.
