Gundersen patients can now get protected against COVID-19 by receiving the vaccine during Family Medicine appointments at the Onalaska Clinic.
The healthcare system will soon expand vaccine availability to Onalaska Pediatrics appointments and during primary care appointments in La Crosse, Sparta, Tomah, Decorah, Winona and Waukon later, along with select Critical Access Hospital locations and the Ashley Wellness Center for Ashley Furniture employees and their family members.
The vaccine is your best defense against serious illness from COVID-19, especially as the Delta variant circulates in our region. The variant is more transmissible and may lead to more severe illness.
It's important to remember to get both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine to have maximum protection against COVID-19 and its variants.
More study is needed on vaccine booster shots. Gundersen is watching this closely and will share updates when available.
