We realize that people are excited and eager to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Our teams are working hard to vaccinate people as quickly, efficiently and equitably as possible. We ask that everyone please continue to be patient as we wait for the vaccine to become more widely available.
Currently, Monroe Clinic and SSM Health are vaccinating individuals in the following currently eligible groups, as approved by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services:
- Frontline health care workers
- Essential frontline public safety workers like police and fire
- Adults ages 65 and older
Patients who are currently eligible to be vaccinated can call Monroe Clinic's COVID-19 Vaccine telephone line at 608-324-1815 to schedule their vaccine appointment at our main campus in Monroe or at our Freeport branch. This line is available Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services recently announced that additional essential workers and at-risk groups will be eligible for vaccination beginning tentatively on March 1. The expansion of the next eligible groups depends on availability of vaccine doses and supplies. You can read more about the eligible groups on the Wisconsin DHS website.
If you are interested in receiving the vaccine, we urge you to fill out the vaccine interest form on our website where you can sign up to be notified when vaccination appointments will be available for you. Pre-registration will not guarantee an immediate appointment. This form will help us in notifying you on how to schedule an appointment once you are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
It is important to remember that there are hundreds of thousands of people eligible in this current vaccination phase and our ability to vaccinate depends on vaccine supplies. Please be patient as we proactively work to offer vaccinations as efficiently and equitably as possible. In the meantime, we ask that you please refrain from calling your health care provider or clinic for vaccine information. Our phone lines need to remain open for patients who are experiencing active symptoms or have acute care needs.
You can find more information about Wisconsin vaccination guidelines, plans, and currently eligible groups on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website. For more information about the COVID-19 vaccines, visit the CDC's website.
Please continue to be vigilant in protecting yourself and others from spreading illness: wear a mask, maintain social distance, practice frequent hand washing, do not gather with people you do not live with, and stay home when you are sick.
We continue to work with our community health partners and the Wisconsin Department of Health to ensure this vaccine is available to all who want it in the communities we serve, including members of vulnerable and underserved populations.
We look forward to being able to vaccinate everyone as soon as possible.
