COVID-19 vaccine update for the week of March 29

Latest

  • Gundersen has received a limited amount of Johnson & Johnson vaccine and will provide it for patients beginning this week.
  • Patients will not be able to choose whether they receive Johnson & Johnson (single-dose vaccine) or the two-dose vaccine from Pfizer or Moderna when they schedule a vaccine appointment.
  • Gundersen continues to invite eligible patients to receive the vaccine, which now include patients 16 to 64 with certain medical conditions, as well as previously eligible groups.
  • Appointments may not be available immediately when someone is eligible.
  • Gundersen Critical Access Hospital locations have a limited number of appointments available.

Remember

  • All approved COVID-19 vaccine options are highly effective in preventing death, hospitalizations, and severe COVID-19 illness.
  • Visit gundersenhealth.org/vaccine for helpful information, including state resources for vaccine questions and connections to vaccination sites.
  • 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.
  • 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.

The vaccine is the surest way for us to return to normal. Gundersen has provided more than 30,000 first-dose vaccinations and about 22,000 second-dose vaccinations across our system. Thank you to community partners for providing more vaccination options as we wait for vaccine supply to catch up with demand.
