COVID-19 vaccine screening form draws thousands of responses in La Crosse County

Site launched in mid-January

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – The La Crosse County Health Department as asking qualifying members of the community complete a  vaccine screening form.

The County launched a screening forum about a week ago.

The form is available for community members that do not have a primary care provider through Gundersen or Mayo Clinic Health Systems.

The site launched in the middle of January.

Plenty of people are making sure they can get the vaccine when it is available to them.

“8,000 individuals have completed that form to fill out. That doesn’t mean that all of them meet the criteria. But it does speak to the large amount of interest that there is in the COVID-19 vaccine,” said La Crosse County COVID-19 response media specialist Abbie Loos.

More information about the screening form is available here.
