Community-based vaccination clinic in Barron County to open April 21
MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) --- Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced the sixth community-based vaccination clinic in the state will open in Barron County on April 20.
It will be located in Rice Lake at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire campus.
The Barron clinic plans to administer at least 200 doses per day, and has the ability to do up to 500 per day, according to officials.
“We started opening these clinics with the goal to optimize local vaccination efforts by closing gaps in vaccine access across Wisconsin,” said Gov. Evers. “From Rock County to Racine, and now in Barron County, these clinics are helping us accomplish that goal by getting more shots in arms and helping our communities bounce back from COVID-19.”
The clinic will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
