COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Burnett County and the State of Wisconsin are moving together through the Vaccine Phases that have been set forth by the Wisconsin State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee (SDMAC) to have as smooth of a vaccine roll-out as possible.​ These groups are being prioritized due to an increased risk of exposure or vulnerability to COVID-19.

​The state of Wisconsin currently receives about 200,000 doses of vaccine each week and those doses need to be spread across the entire state. There will be lag time in getting everyone who is eligible and wants the vaccine to actually receive it. Thanks for your patience.

​​​“We’re going to keep getting shots in arms as quickly as possible and as soon we have vaccines available,” said Gov. Tony Evers. “In the meantime, we have to continue working together to prevent the spread of this virus by wearing face coverings and limiting gatherings with others while we vaccinate folks across our state.”​

Who is eligible?

Anyone ages 16 and older are now currently eligible in the state of Wisconsin. 

  • Pfizer approved for ages 16 +
  • Moderna approved for ages 18 +
  • Johnson & Johnson/Janssen approved for ages 18 +

Where You Can Receive the COVID-19 Vaccine

Please do not sign-up or make appointments for vaccines at multiples locations. This is difficult to track the cross overs and it takes up resources.  Vaccines are very limited at this time so please be patient. All providers will ask you to verify that you meet the above criteria and are eligible for vaccine at this time. An appointment is required for all locations listed on the below tabs, please do not just show up without an appointment.  Thank you!
