COVID-19 Vaccines at ThedaCare
All Wisconsinites age 6 months and older are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine per WI-DHS guidance.
Updated COVID-19 boosters recently became available. The boosters have been authorized by the Food and Drug Administration and recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and they are the first Omicron-specific vaccines to be made available in the United States. They target the original strain of COVID-19, as well as the BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron subvariants. The highly contagious BA.5 Omicron subvariant is the dominant strain of COVID-19, making up about 90% of cases nationally.
As of Sept. 1, 2022, the current adult booster vaccines will no longer be given at ThedaCare facilities, as the new booster formulations are due to ship by the end of September. ThedaCare will continue to give the primary immunization series (original dose) adult dosing to anyone who has not started or completed their initial COVID-19 primary vaccine series.
ThedaCare will communicate to the community as the updated COVID-19 booster vaccines become available.
ThedaCare offers direct COVID-19 vaccine scheduling for all eligible individuals through our free MyThedaCare app. ThedaCare will continue vaccinating eligible populations, following Wisconsin DHS eligibility guidelines. For more information, visit the Wisconsin DHS vaccine database.
ThedaCare has administered 131,418 vaccine doses to-date.
Those receiving the vaccine do not need to be ThedaCare patients. ThedaCare has available vaccine appointments open across our service area. For vaccine appointments, ThedaCare utilizes a direct scheduling process. No vaccine order is required for the direct scheduling process. Patients will have the opportunity to select a vaccine manufacturer, if there is a preference, along with the available appointment time and location that best suits them. ThedaCare only recommends vaccines that are deemed to be safe, and encourages community members to get vaccinated when they are eligible.
This information is updated to reflect current eligibility and dose availability at ThedaCare. Please check back for updates.

Individuals making vaccination appointments may use MyThedaCare or the Ripple by ThedaCare app to select the ThedaCare vaccination site that is most convenient.
