What You Need to Know
Vaccine inventory from the Federal Government to the State is coming on a weekly basis. The State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee (SDMAC) will use this framework to determine State wide priorities for vaccination. Information from the SDMAC can be found here.
On April 23, 2021 the Centers for Disease Control, Food and Drug Administration, and Wisconsin Department of Health Services recommended that the administration of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine resume in the United States. After a thorough safety review it was determined that the benefits outweigh the potential risk. Click here for some FAQs.
Who is ELIGIBLE for vaccine right now?
- Everyone 12 years and over
We will continue to utilize this website and social media to inform the public.
Although vaccine is becoming available, we all still need to take the necessary precautions to prevent getting or spreading COVID-19. Please stay home when you’re sick, continue to wear masks, limit indoor gatherings, practice physical distancing, and wash your hands often. The combination of a vaccine and prevention measures will help us as we slowly return to “normal.”
Where can I go for the most up to date information about vaccines and vaccination data?
Milwaukee County’s Unified Emergency Operations Center (UEOC) vaccination website https://www.healthymke.com/.
Am I able to receive the vaccine in another state while traveling?
Yes, as long as you are there long enough to receive the second dose.
We thank you for your patience during this time of navigating vaccine distribution.
