Low COVID-19 vaccine supply will force Gundersen Health System to cancel 780 first dose vaccine appointments for its patients between Thursday, Feb. 18, and Tuesday, Feb. 23 at its La Crosse and Onalaska vaccination locations.

Most important: Patients who have their first dose vaccine appointments cancelled will be notified and prioritized for a rescheduled appointment as soon as supply allows.

  • Appointments outside of the time frame above will remain scheduled; however, patients should prepare for future cancellations based on supply.
  • Gundersen will continue to provide second doses to scheduled patients.
  • Please note this impacts Wisconsin allocation only.

Gundersen understands the frustration and confusion felt by our patients eager to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. We ask patients refrain from calling or emailing Gundersen about COVID-19 vaccine appointments or about vaccine availability or eligibility and urge them to visit our Gundersen Visitor Guidelines page for the latest information.

Vaccine appointments at Gundersen are only available to patients who have received an appointment invitation through MyChart, letter or telephone call.

During the week of Feb. 15, Gundersen anticipates administering fewer than 3,000 vaccinations across its system, including fewer than 1,000 first-dose appointments.

Gundersen encourages patients to receive the vaccination at another location, if they're able. Walgreens is providing COVID-19 vaccine to those eligible. Several counties in Gundersen's service area are offering vaccine registration and notifications once those registered are eligible for the vaccine, including La Crosse County, Trempealeau County and Monroe County in Wisconsin and Fillmore County and Houston County in Minnesota.
