MILWAUKEE - Veterans enrolled with the Milwaukee VA and its community clinics in Green Bay, Appleton, Cleveland and Union Grove who are 65 or older can get a COVID-19 vaccination.
Vaccinations will be available Saturday, Jan. 16 through Monday, Jan. 18 at a Milwaukee VA Medical Center walk-in clinic.
The Milwaukee VA Medical Center is located at 5000 W. National Avenue. Doors open at 7:15 a.m. in the main hospital East Entrance and will remain open until 500 vaccinations are reached each day.
No appointment is necessary.
This is a two-dose series of vaccinations. Veterans must be available for a follow-up appointment for the second dose in about three weeks.
Those wishing to be vaccinated must bring identification, wear a mask to enter the hospital, maintain social distancing, and not be ill, including having any COVID-19 symptoms such as coughing or fever.
Officials say those who already have a vaccination appointment time at the medical center or clinics should keep that time and not come to the walk-in event.
