Health Systems, La Crosse County Health Department prepare for next phase of COVID-19 vaccine rollout

Number of appointments will be dependent on the number of doses available

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Mayo Clinic Health System says they are seeing a high number of calls asking about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Both Mayo and Gundersen Health Systems will contact patients either through their online account or through a letter letting them know when they are eligible to schedule an appointment to get the vaccine.

“I would just encourage people to not inundate their primary care or other health care facilities with phone calls, with questions,” said Mayo Clinic Health System family medicine physician Kevin Fitzgerald.

Otherwise, there is a screening and interest form on the La Crosse County Health Department’s website that will connect those eligible with a provider.

The number of appointments will be dependent on the number of doses available.
