Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information & Updates

IMPORTANT VACCINE CLINIC UPDATE:
The Washington Ozaukee Public Health Department is not holding a vaccination clinic today, Wednesday, February 24 due to a delay in the shipment of vaccine doses. If you had your first or second dose scheduled today, we have attempted to contact you via phone or email to reschedule your appointment. All 2nd dose appointments have been rescheduled for March 2nd at the same time as your canceled appointment.

Email covid19@washozwi.gov if you have any questions.
