Marshfield Clinic Health System to begin vaccinating Wisconsinites 65 and older

​Jan. 19, 2021

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield Clinic Health System is now scheduling COVID-19 vaccinations for people age 65 and older after the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced that they will be eligible beginning January 25. 

There are approximately 700,000 Wisconsinites who are 65 and older and Wisconsin currently receives around 70,000 first-dose vaccines per week from the federal government, according to DHS.

Adults 65 and older have been recommended by the federal government and discussed by the Wisconsin State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee (SDMAC). COVID-19 has more severe consequences in older adults and prioritizing this population will help protect more Wisconsinites from serious illness and death.

Visit the Marshfield Clinic Health System website at marshfieldclinic.org/CovidVaccine to complete the survey for the COVID-19 vaccine or call 877-998-0880. If you qualify, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment. COVID-19 vaccine distribution may take several months. We are working as quickly as possible to ensure those who are eligible are vaccinated.

We request patience as we anticipate a high number of people reaching out to schedule a vaccination.

The COVID-19 vaccine is currently available to Phase1A health care workers and patients 65 years and older at this time.
