COVID-19 vaccine eligibility & availability

We're navigating the most important, complex public health effort in our nation's history together. We will continue to get vaccine until everyone who wants to be protected against COVID-19 is immunized, but it will take time.

We're eager to protect you from COVID-19 with a vaccination, but Gundersen's ability to offer the vaccine depends on the supply we receive. Like other healthcare systems, we are following a framework to vaccinate those at highest risk first.

You'll hear from us through MyChart or by mailed letter when it's your turn to schedule a vaccination appointment.
