Limited Vaccinations to Begin at UW–Madison
A safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine arrived this week in Dane County. UW Health will vaccinate eligible employees at UW–Madison who are dually appointed. UW–Madison students and employees who are not affiliated with UW Health but who are eligible for the initial phase of vaccination, or Phase 1a, will receive an email from University Health Services shortly with more information. Phase 1a includes health care workers and employees who are in direct contact with COVID-19 patients or who have direct contact with the virus or virus specimens. Anyone who believes they should be vaccinated under Phase 1a because they meet the criteria above but who do not receive an email from UHS this week should email firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line “Phase 1a eligibility” and include their full name, contact information, and a description of their eligibility. More information about COVID-19 vaccination will be available at covidresponse.wisc.edu.
