When can I get a COVID-19 vaccine?

Everyone in Wisconsin ages 16 and older is eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine at no cost. Although everyone is eligible to get vaccine, vaccine providers will prioritize previously eligible groups. Based on the amount of vaccine doses available, it will take time for everyone in Wisconsin to get vaccinated.

Every community is different. Some places may have longer waitlists than others. But everyone will eventually have the opportunity to get vaccinated.

Where can I get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Wisconsin has over 2,000 COVID-19 registered vaccinators across the state. Use Vaccine Finder to find a provider near you! Much like your flu vaccine, there are options for where you get your COVID-19 vaccine. People can be vaccinated at many places including: health care providers, pharmacies, local health departments, places of employment, and community-based vaccination sites. Local health departments are coordinating many of the local options.

I received the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine, what do I need to do?

As of April 13, 2021, Wisconsin providers have paused giving the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine. We have paused giving it because a very small number of people who got it had a very rare side effect – a blood clot.

  • Understand that these severe events are incredibly rare.
  • Monitor for the following symptoms up to three weeks after you vaccination: severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath. Symptoms associated with these severe events have occurred six to 13 days after receiving the vaccine.
  • If you develop any of these symptoms, contact your health care provider.
  • Use the v-safe program to report your symptoms.
