The Lambeau Field vaccination clinic initially will operate in the Atrium and may expand to other areas of the stadium as supply and weather allow, said Bellin Health President and CEO Chris Woleske. With adequate supply, the site will have capacity to vaccinate 6,000 individuals per week initially and quickly ramp up to 10,000 individuals weekly.
Lambeau Field adds to more than a dozen NFL facilities that are being used as vaccine sites throughout the country.
"We are proud to be a part of this team effort, and the Packers organization remains committed to doing everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "We know the only way we can help bring an end to this pandemic and see Lambeau Field full of fans again is if a significant portion of our community receives the vaccine once they are eligible."
Individuals will not need to be Bellin Health patients to be vaccinated at Lambeau Field, but appointments will be required. No walk-ins will be accepted at this time. Eligible individuals may call (920) 445-7313 to add their names to an appointment waitlist. Please note: Only individuals who qualify for the current phase of vaccination will be able to schedule vaccines. The Lambeau Field site will replace Bellin's current Green Bay vaccination site on the Bellin Health Ashwaubenon clinic campus.
