Quick Q&A: 

  • I am under the age of 65, but high-risk. Am I eligible? -
    • You are not eligible at this time. We are awaiting further guidance from the State regarding high-risk and vulnerable populations. Continue to check back here for updates. 
  • I am eligible under Phase 1A. Do I get preference for receiving the vaccine above others? 
    • ​Not at this time. The health department is prioritizing both Phase 1A and individuals 65 years of age and older under Phase 1B.
  • I live outside of Washington and Ozaukee Counties. Can I get vaccinated? 
    • Please check with your local health department for vaccination options. 
  • I received my first dose outside of the Washington Ozaukee Public Health Department. Can I get my second dose here? 
    • We are not currently offering 2nd doses to individuals who were vaccinated by outside parties. This is because we only receive enough vaccine to provide 2nd doses to those who received their first dose with the health department. If you are looking for a 2nd dose, please go the provider who gave you the first dose. You may also check with your primary care provider, and some Walgreens, CVS, and Meijer locations.

    • ​Yes, we are currently keeping a waitlist of those eligible as a health care worker, first responder, individuals age 65+, and education and licensed child care staff. Eligible persons can add contact information to the list here: https://form.jotform.com/210616326165147
