Health Department and UWEC Partner on First Community Drive-Through Vaccine Clinic

June 24, 2021 - 11:27am

The final COVID-19 vaccine clinic at UWEC Zorn Arena will be on Wednesday, June 30th from 3pm-7pm.

Community vaccine clinics in July are moving to the Health Department and the UWEC Water Street Parking lot, which will be operated as a drive-through and walk-up clinic. From April 8 to June 23, more than 14,400 vaccine doses were given at Zorn Arena.

This includes 634 doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine and 13,781 first and second doses of Pfizer vaccine. As the demand for vaccinations decreases, the Health Department and UWEC are working to make it even easier for people to get their vaccine.

“The partnership that came together to operate the Zorn Arena Clinic for nearly 3 months has been an incredible asset to help get many people vaccinated in our community and region,” said Lieske Giese, Health Department Director. “Now, we are excited to offer a drive-thru clinic for anyone who prefers to get vaccinated while staying in their car. Just drive up, roll down your window, and roll up your sleeve!”

Vaccines at both locations will be free and no ID or proof of citizenship will be needed. Appointments are optional and may be scheduled at vaccinate.wi.gov. Walk-ins are also welcome.
