Marshfield Clinic Health System update on COVID-19 vaccinations for people 65 and older

​Jan. 20, 2021

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield Clinic Health System has received thousands of requests for the COVID-19 vaccinations since the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced Tuesday that people age 65 and older will be eligible beginning Jan. 25. 

We are appreciative that so many people are seeking this vaccination to protect themselves, their loved ones and community members. We are working as quickly as possible to ensure those who are eligible receive vaccinations. We urge patience as we navigate the high number of people reaching out to schedule a vaccination and as we await additional supplies of vaccine.

There are approximately 700,000 Wisconsinites who are 65 and older and Wisconsin currently receives around 70,000 first-dose vaccines per week from the federal government, according to DHS. Marshfield Clinic Health System, like all health systems, is reliant on state and federal health departments to disperse vaccines. Without increased amounts of vaccines, elderly patients may have to wait weeks, if not months, to receive the vaccination.

The easiest way to sign up for the vaccine is to visit marshfieldclinic.org/CovidVaccine and complete the COVID-19 vaccine survey. You may also call 877-998-0880 to complete the survey, but you may face lengthy hold times or directed to leave a voicemail that may take five days for a return call.

After completing the survey, Marshfield Clinic will contact you to schedule an appointment if you qualify. Do not call your primary care provider or other health care professional to request a COVID-19 vaccination as this is the only way to get an appointment scheduled.
