As of January 25, those 65 years of age and older may be vaccinated by healthcare providers, local health departments and private pharmacies. If you are age 65+ and have a local healthcare provider, your local healthcare provider should be reaching out to you, based on vaccine availability. You can also visit your provider’s website for more instructions. Here are a few of the most common providers in the area: Ascension, Advocate Aurora Health, Froedtert and ProHealth Care.
If you are age 65+ and want vaccine updates, including known vaccination clinics, complete THIS FORM. Once your information is received, you will be added to an email distribution list for vaccine updates and information. Completing this form does not guarantee you will be vaccinated by the health department due to vaccine availability.
Please note that there are 28,822 people in Racine County and 700,000 people in Wisconsin who fall into the 65+ age group but Wisconsin is only receiving about 70,000 first doses per week. Not everyone in this age group will be able to be vaccinated immediately.
