Everything is safer if you’re vaccinated

Western Wisconsin is a leader for COVID-19 vaccination, with 60% of residents 18 years and older receiving at least one dose of free, safe vaccine, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

Yet, we can do better. Everyone age 12 and older is encouraged to get the COVID-19 vaccine, which provides the surest protection against the virus and its variants. Worst is the Delta variant, which has been detected in our region and is causing significant spikes in COVID cases and hospitalizations in parts of the United States with lower vaccination rates.

The risk of getting COVID-19 is significantly lower if you're vaccinated. Everything is safer if you're vaccinated.

How to get the vaccine

Anyone age 12 and older, patients or non-patients, can get the free, safe COVID-19 vaccine at Gundersen.

All three approved COVID-19 vaccines – Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson – are available during walk-in appointments at the Gundersen Onalaska Clinic 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

COVID-19 vaccine is available during Onalaska Family Medicine appointments for those with scheduled appointments. Onalaska Pediatrics will be next, followed by primary care in La Crosse, Sparta, Tomah, Decorah, Winona and Waukon clinics, along with select Critical Access Hospital locations and the Ashley Wellness Center for Ashley Furniture employees and their family members.

Adult Gundersen patients can walk-in, schedule their appointment through MyChart, or call the scheduling line at (608) 775-6829. Adult non-patients can walk-in or call the scheduling line at (608) 775-6829, option 2, for a vaccine appointment.

Patients under age 18 need parent or guardian consent in person or by calling the Gundersen scheduling line at (608) 775-6829.
