Wisconsin COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Map
WI DHS has created a map to help Wisconsinites more easily find and connect with vaccine providers in their area. View the map on their website:
Adults Aged 65 Years and Older
Healthcare systems such as Froedtert, Ascension and Advocate Aurora are reaching out directly to their eligible patients. Health systems are encouraging patients to sign-up with their mobile apps or through their MyChart account to receive information about vaccination appointments. Check the website of the health system your doctor is affiliated with to learn more about how they are reaching out to eligible patients.  
* Froedtert & Medical College of Wisconsin is offering the vaccine to adults 65 and older. The best way to stay informed is through MyChart and the Froedtert & MCW mobile app.
*  Advocate Aurora Health is offering the vaccine to adults 65 and older.  The best way to stay informed is through the LiveWell app.  
Ascension is offering the vaccine to adults 65 and older. 
* ProHealth is offering the vaccine to adults 65 and older.
* COVID-19 Vaccines at the VA 

Health systems, like local health departments, also have a limited supply of vaccine, so it will likely take time for providers to contact all eligible patients. If you have already received a COVID-19 vaccine or have an appointment scheduled and do not want these continued updates, feel free to “unsubscribe” from this notification list.

We thank everyone for their patience during the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine.
