Everyone 16 and Older Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine Starting April 5

On Tuesday, Gov. Tony Evers and DHS announced everyone age 16 and over will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting April 5, 2021. Wisconsin currently leads the nation in being one of the most efficient vaccinators for getting available shots in arms. With increased vaccine supply and an accelerated vaccination pace in recent weeks, the state is able to open eligibility to everyone four weeks earlier than expected.

There continue to be many options available for getting vaccinated, including through community-based vaccination clinics sponsored by DHS with federal and local partners, pharmacies, health care providers, local and tribal health departments, and employers. Below are key resources:
