As of May 13th, 2021, everyone in Wisconsin age 12 and older is now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, and we strongly recommend that all qualifying individuals get vaccinated as soon as possible.
Public Health Madison & Dane County is scheduling appointments for various dates and times for their vaccination clinic at the Alliant Energy Center.
The vaccination clinic is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12pm-7pm and Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 8am-3pm.
The clinic is a walk-up, bike-up, or drive-up site with free transportation available for those who need it.
The clinic is closed on Saturday, May 29 in observance of Memorial Day.
Appointments are recommended but not required. If you need help booking an appointment, please call (608) 242-6328.
Parents and guardians need to either attend the vaccine appointments with students or must be available over the phone to give verbal consent.
Individuals can also call the toll-free DHS vaccine hotline at 1-844-684-1064 with questions or help registering for a vaccination appointment. The hotline is available in Hindi, Hmong, Somali, and Spanish. The hotline can help you find a vaccinator, assist with registration, and help answer any of your questions about vaccines. The hotline is intended for people who don't have internet access.
As of now individuals who are 12 -17 years old must receive the Pfizer vaccine, as it is the only vaccine currently approved for those age groups. Clinical trials and related research is ongoing, and it is likely vaccines will be approved for even younger age groups in the coming months.
You may also consider other options for getting vaccinated, including:
Area pharmacies. Community pharmacies and those participating in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program might have vaccine available. Check the website for your local pharmacy, such as Walgreens , Costco , Hy-Vee , CVS , Hometown Pharmacy , Wal-Mart , Pick-n-Save, and Metro Market .
A healthcare provider. Visit a provider's website for more instructions. Some providers will vaccinate you, even if you are not their patient. Below are websites to a few of the most common providers in the area:
Even as more Wisconsinites get fully vaccinated, it is critical for everyone to continue to use mitigation strategies, including masking up, staying physically distant, washing hands, and getting tested. These are still critical tools for protecting ourselves and our communities against COVID-19.
