Campus COVID-19 Vaccination Update

On March 1, additional people in the state of Wisconsin became eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccines. University Health Services is offering vaccines as quickly as possible to members of the campus community who meet eligibility requirements, but limited vaccine supply means there is not yet enough for everyone. UHS will email you when an appointment is available for you; please continue to check your email. Anyone who meets state eligibility may also make vaccine appointments through their health care providers or other vaccination providers in the community.
