WHAT IS COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a communicable, respiratory disease that can cause severe illness in some people. COVID-19 is easily spread from person to person through respiratory droplets and aerosol particles released by people with COVID-19 during coughing, sneezing, singing, talking, and breathing.
If you are interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, you can search for appointments in your area at Vaccines.gov. The Vaccine Finder allows you to search for vaccine types available at locations in your area, whether the vaccine is in or out of stock, and the days and hours of the vaccine clinics.
Please visit the CDC website and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) website for more information and resources about COVID-19 vaccines. If you are in the Milwaukee area, please visit Healthy MKE for information about COVID-19 vaccines.
Please talk to your IRIS Consultant if you have any questions about how to find a COVID-19 vaccine. We can help support you and accommodate your needs to make sure you are able to receive a vaccine if you are interested in it.
Additionally, please call the Wisconsin BPDD COVID-19 Vaccine helpline at 608-266-7826 with any COVID-19 vaccine related questions. They can provide support with finding and setting up a vaccination appointment in your community, helping you plan to get a vaccination appointment and setting up a ride, getting answers to questions about the safety of the available vaccines, and general support to help you get the vaccine if you are interested in receiving one.
