December marked the statewide and local kick-off of COVID-19 vaccination, and over three months later inoculations continue to pick up pace as more individuals become eligible and a third incarnation of the vaccine is distributed to La Crosse County providers.
Currently, the state is in its second-to-last eligibility phase, with those 16 and older with select health conditions allowed to make appointments as of March 22. On April 5, all adults will be able to schedule their shots.
Inoculations are available at sites including Gundersen Health System, Mayo Clinic Health System, the Community Vaccine Clinic at UW-La Crosse and Walgreens locations citywide.
Eligible individuals can schedule their appointments via their provider, on the Walgreens website, or through the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
