COVID-19 Delta variant threatens areas with low vaccination rates

COVID-19 Delta variant threatens areas with low vaccination rates
Monday, July 12, 2021

The COVID-19 Delta variant, which is highly transmissible and may lead to more severe illness, now accounts for more than 50% of COVID cases nationally.

Gundersen recently sequenced 15 COVID cases, eight of which were linked to the Delta variant. This variant is causing a rise in cases in areas that have low COVID-19 vaccination rates. COVID-19 vaccine is the best defense against the Delta variant.

It's even more important to get a free, safe COVID-19 vaccination.

How to get the vaccine

Anyone age 12 and older, patients or non-patients, can schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at Gundersen.

Walk-in vaccine appointments are available at the Gundersen Onalaska Clinic 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays (Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson both days) and Thursdays (Pfizer, Moderna).

Adult Gundersen patients can walk-in, schedule their appointment through MyChart, or call the scheduling line at (608) 775-6829. Adult non-patients can walk-in or call the scheduling line at (608) 775-6829, option 2, for a vaccine appointment.

Patients under age 18 need parent or guardian consent in person or by calling the Gundersen scheduling line at (608) 775-6829.
