Marshfield Clinic Health System announced today its focus will remain on vaccinating the current eligible population that includes those 65 years or older, frontline health care workers, police and fire personnel and corrections staff.
Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has announced that starting March 1 educators, people enrolled in Medicaid long-term care programs, some public-facing essential workers, non-frontline essential health care workers and staff/residents in congregate living facilities are eligible to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.
While those new groups will be eligible March 1, the demand from the over 65 population in particular, who are among the most vulnerable to get the virus, will continue to take priority. They will get access to the COVID-19 vaccine even if they request it after March 1. People can be added to the waitlist by going to marshfieldclinic.org/CovidVaccine or by calling 877-998-0880 if they do not have internet access.
Here individuals will take a survey that will capture information to expedite outreach and scheduling when vaccines become available.
