Richland Center, WI: Richland County Health & Human Services in partnership with the Richland Hospital and Richland County Emergency Management will be offering a FREE COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at the Richland Center Community/Senior Center, 1050 N. Orange Street:
Wednesday, March 3rd from 8:30am-4:30pm
Individuals who received their 1st vaccine dose on February 10th are REMINDED THAT THEY ARE PRE-SCHEDULED TO GET THEIR 2nd VACCINE DOSE during this clinic. Richland County citizens who are eligible to receive the vaccine include individuals age 65 and older, frontline health care workers, police, sheriff (including correctional officers), fire personnel, and funeral workers as we progress into Phase 1B of the Wisconsin COVID-19 Response Plan.
To schedule, individuals should go to the Richland Hospital website at www.richlandhospital.com/covid19, click on the “Schedule your Appointment Here” button, and then select a future clinic date at the “Community Center” location. Once scheduled, individuals should arrive to their appointment only 5 minutes early – MASKS & SOCIAL DISTANCING ARE REQUIRED. The Pfizer vaccine will be administered, which requires two doses, and the second dose will need to be administered 21 days after the administering of the first dose. Your second dose appointment will be scheduled immediately after receiving your first dose. While this vaccination is not required, it is highly recommended, and will be provided at no out-of-pocket cost to you. Your patience and cooperation is appreciated as we begin offering these local vaccination clinics.
