DHS to connect vaccinators with groups wanting on-site clinics
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced it is helping employers and community-based organizations connect with vaccine providers in order to offer on-site vaccinations on Tuesday, May 4.
According to officials this will help provide increased protection from COVID-19 in more communities. The program is part of the statewide effort to promote vaccine equity by making COVID-19 vaccines more accessible for Wisconsinites.
“The COVID-19 vaccines are the best tools we have to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities from the virus. And our biggest priority is to ensure all Wisconsinites have the opportunity to get that protection,” said DHS Secretary-designee Karen Timberlake. “This vaccinator matching program will help us achieve that by providing vaccine options to people in their communities through the organizations they trust.”
