Why do we need a COVID-19 vaccine?
Getting vaccinated will be one of the best ways to protect yourself and your community. A COVID-19 vaccine can protect you from getting sick and potentially prevent you from spreading the virus to those around you.
A vaccine, however, does not replace the need to continue other actions to stop the spread and keep ourselves healthy. This is especially true while we are in the process of administering vaccine, as it will take many months to provide vaccine to everyone who needs it.
Will the vaccine be free?
Yes, the vaccine will be free to everyone.
You may see a charge from the vaccine clinic to your health insurance provider for the cost of the vaccine, but it can't be passed on to you in any way. Both private insurance and public programs will cover 100% of the vaccine administration fee.
Please see the Wisconsin Department of Health website for more answers to frequently asked questions.
I am fully vaccinated, now what?
Please see the Wisconsin Department of Health Services guidelines for those who are fully vaccinated found here:

Do I need a booster?
People who are moderately to severly immunocompromised are recommended to get an additional dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) no sooner than 28 days after their initial two-dose mRNA COVID-19 vaccine series. Fully vaccinated people who are NOT moderately or severely immunocompromised do not need an additional vaccine dose of COVID-19 vaccine at this time.
