Next Clark COVID vaccine clinic will be on March 11 in Greenwood

The next drive-through vaccination clinic for Clark County will be on March 11, at the Greenwood Fire and EMS Department, 103 Cannery St., Greenwood, from 10 a.m.- 3:30 p.m. If you are unable to make your appointment due to inclement weather or personal reasons, or arrive after the clinic hours, you will not be guaranteed your dose. You will have to schedule another appointment at a future Clark County Health Department (CCHD) COVID-19 vaccine clinic or reach out to your local healthcare provider, pharmacy, etc. COVID-19 vaccines will be available for those listed below. At this time, vaccines are not available for the general public.

CCHD offers appointment time slots to all individuals who are currently eligible. Protocols put into place by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) require administration to be limited to those part of Phase 1A and Phase 1B only (listed below).

Phase 1A: Healthcare Workers, Long-Term Care Residents, EMS Personnel, Mortuary Workers Phase 1B: Visit the following links for more of a breakdown of the next eligible groups, along with frequently asked questions (Wisconsin Department of Health Services: Priority Group 1B) (DHS - COVID- 19: Am I Eligible for the Vaccine?).

It will take time to vaccinate all that are eligible. There is not enough vaccine for everyone in all of the eligible groups. Eligible groups within 1B are prioritized by DHS. Some vaccinators are still working through 1A populations, and may have different amounts of eligible availability.

The CCHD has been allotted Moderna vaccines for the week of March 8. Appointments are required. Appointments may fill-up fast. If appointment slots are already full, do not call the CCHD or their local partners. The CCHD is not able to keep waiting lists at this time. Once appointments are full, there will not be any more available appointments until the next press release from the CCHD. Press releases will typically occur Friday afternoons around 2 p.m.

Those who sign up for an appointment are not guaranteed a dose if they do not meet the eligibility criteria. Do not arrive more than 15 minutes prior to your appointment time for safety and traffic concerns.
