Brie Goodin, Office of Preparedness and Emergency Health Care, Division of Public Health Wisconsin Department of Health Services
Recently, I shared COVID-19 vaccination resources from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) with you, and asked you to share them with your members and community partners. One of the resources I provided was a map that shows locations of vaccine providers. DHS has decided to transition away from this map to a similar tool, VaccineFinder provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). VaccineFinder has additional features including:
If you or your community partners linked to the Map of Vaccine Providers webpage or embedded the DHS vaccine map on your website, you will need to update your page/link to VaccineFinder.org. We also encourage you share this new resources with your clients, members, or community partners.
In addition, we recognize that you are a trusted voice within the community, and ask again for your assistance in sharing information about the COVID-19 vaccine. DHS has the following resources available for you:
Please let me know if you would be interested in scheduling an event or vaccine confidence training, or if you have any questions.
As a reminder, this vaccine is free to all persons age 16 or older, regardless of their insurance status, and anyone who lives, works, or studies in Wisconsin cannot be turned away from receiving a vaccine.
Videos and print materials translated into multiple languages.
