More Opportunities for Vaccines for Employees

University Health Services is now offering COVID-19 vaccine appointments to all employees at UW–Madison, including in-person and remote employees. To search for and schedule appointments at UHS, visit go.wisc.edu/myuhscovidvax. Appointments at UHS are limited due to limited COVID-19 vaccine supplies. All eligible members of the UW community who are interested in vaccination should also seek appointments off campus and can find options by visiting dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/vaccine-get.htm. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services also offers a registry to schedule available appointments in the community, which can be found at vaccinate.wi.gov/en-US.
