COVID-19 vaccine update for June 7
Gundersen Health System has provided more than 83,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to people across its system. This includes nearly 900 Pfizer vaccine doses to kids ages 12 to 15 years old across the region.
Now that most kids are out of school for the summer, it's a great time to get those ages 12 to 17 vaccinated. The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, free and significantly lowers the risk of infection. This is especially important as many people travel, see family and friends, and enjoy summer activities that have largely returned to normal.
Getting the vaccine protects you, your family, neighbors and anyone else around you from COVID-19 and the disease variants in our area. Everything is safer if you're vaccinated.
To receive maximum protection from COVID-19 including its variants, it is important to receive both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Johnson & Johnson remains a one-dose vaccine.
Anyone age 12 and older can schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at Gundersen.
