MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Children’s Wisconsin is working to get the COVID-19 vaccine to kids 12 and older across southeastern Wisconsin.

  • Kenosha Pediatrics (6809 122nd Ave., Kenosha)
  • North Shore Pediatrics (1655 W. Mequon Rd., Mequon)
  • Midtown Clinic (5433 W. Fond Du Lac Ave., Milwaukee)

  • June 12: Greenfield Clinic (3365 S. 103rd St., Greenfield)
  • June 12: Lakeside Pediatrics (8600 75th St., Kenosha)

“These vaccines are important and important for kids so kids are protected, but also that their families are protected, their community is protected and we want to make vaccines equitable for everybody,” Children’s Wisconsin pediatrician Dr. Brilliant Nimmer. “That’s really the most important part and that’s why it’s important for them to be located in multiple locations.”

Parents who bring their child in for a vaccine can also get their shot at the same appointment.
