COVID-19 vaccine update for the week of March 15

Vaccine supply is slowly increasing and most Gundersen Health System patients who previously had first-dose vaccine appointments cancelled have been rescheduled.

Gundersen is partnering with La Crosse County to vaccinate homeless and homebound residents starting this week. 

More than 7,000 Gundersen patients 65 and older in Iowa have been invited to schedule a first-dose appointment due to increased vaccine supply in our service area. 

Gundersen has provided more than 25,000 first-dose vaccinations and more than 16,000 second-dose vaccinations across our system. This great work by Gundersen staff and community partners is supported by steadily increasing vaccine supply and more local vaccination options for those eligible.

Gundersen encourages everyone eligible to take any opportunity to get the vaccine as soon as they are able.


  • Gundersen vaccine appointments are available only to patients who have received an appointment invitation through MyChart, letter or telephone call.
  • Visit for helpful information, including state resources for vaccine questions and connections to vaccination sites.
  • Everyone who enters a Gundersen location must wear a mask and be screened for COVID-19 symptoms, including those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine.
