Gundersen reaches vaccination milestones

More than 25,000 Gundersen Health System patients have been fully vaccinated (one or two doses) against COVID-19, an important milestone in the ongoing effort to end the pandemic.

The system also expects to reach 60,000 total doses of the vaccine administered to its patients in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa this week. Two of three approved vaccines are a two-shot series.

With vaccine eligibility expanding this week to include all patients ages 16 and older, our community is poised to vaccination thousands more. Visit to find all the information you need for vaccine options.

Gundersen has vaccination appointment availability this week at its Onalaska Clinic, several regional clinics and Critical Access Hospital locations. It's easiest to schedule an appointment online through MyChart. Patients can also call (608) 775-6829 to make an appointment at the Onalaska Clinic.

Parents or guardians of patients ages 16 and 17 must schedule their child's appointment for the Pfizer vaccine only by calling (608) 775-6829.

Our community has waited patiently for expanded eligibility and more vaccine. As Gundersen works to vaccinate our patients as quickly as possible, you should take the vaccine wherever you can get it, as soon as you can.

"The foundation for these vaccines was established years ago by scientists. With prioritization and investment, these vaccines have become a reality and have proven to be even more effective than we ever imagined. They have been received safely by hundreds of millions of people worldwide," said Raj Naik, MD. "The surest way to return to normal is by vaccinating yourself and encouraging others to do the same."
