Getting Your Vaccine

In keeping with state and national guidelines, ThedaCare began vaccinating healthcare workers in December. As of April 5, 2021 the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has expanded vaccine eligibility to include all individuals in Wisconsin, ages 16 and older.

Appointments to receive a COVID-19 vaccine must be made directly through MyThedaCare. Despite expanded eligibility, vaccine supplies and appointments remain limited. If no appointments are available, please continue to check your MyThedaCare account as we add new appointments weekly based on the number of vaccines we receive.

If you’re not a current ThedaCare patient or do not have MyThedaCare, you can set up a free account at MyThedaCare.org. MyThedaCare is also accessible on mobile devices through the MyChart app (available on both iOS and Android).

Scheduling Vaccination Appointments

Effective April 5, all individuals age 16 and older who live, work or study in Wisconsin may make an appointment to be vaccinated.

Individuals, including parents or guardians of children ages 16 and 17, may sign into MyThedaCare and select a time and location to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Parents and guardians making appointments on behalf of minors should note that Pfizer is currently the only vaccine authorized for minors, and appointments for children ages 16 and 17 will be based on our Pfizer dose availability.

To schedule your vaccine appointment:

  • Log in to MyThedaCare
  • Click on the “Schedule Now” icon within the COVID-19 Vaccine message. Available appointments will show, based on which vaccine(s) you have selected
  • Select your preferred appointment time and location

If no appointments are available, please continue to check your MyThedaCare account as we add new appointments weekly based on the number of vaccines we receive.

To make an appointment for a minor, a parent or guardian will need to request proxy access by logging in to MyThedaCare, click on “Account Settings” within the “Menu” tab on your own account, and click “Proxy access to other people”.

If you have forgotten your login information, click forgot username or forgot password on MyThedaCare.org. You will be prompted to answer some security questions to verify your identity and reset or recover your information.

ThedaCare COVID-19 Vaccination Sites

For your convenience, ThedaCare is administering the vaccine at locations throughout the communities we serve, with plans to open more in the weeks to come as more doses become available and more individuals become eligible.

Individuals making vaccination appointments may use MyThedaCare to select the ThedaCare vaccination site that is most convenient for you. Because some vaccines require two doses, 3-4 weeks apart, the second dose must be administered at the same location.

After scheduling an appointment, you can easily check in online on the day of your appointment. Click here to learn more about completing online check-in.

Get the Facts

While many have been waiting for this moment, we understand there are many questions — and even some concerns — regarding the COVID-19 vaccines. These vaccines have been proven safe and effective — and getting vaccinated is an important step we can take to protect those closest to us and reduce the impact of COVID-19 in our communities.

Common COVID-19 Vaccine Questions

ThedaCare is following the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) guidelines for eligibility as they identify additional vaccine-eligible groups.

With all individuals age 16 and older now eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccines, ThedaCare will no longer be sending eligibility notifications. Vaccination appointments may be scheduled directly through MyThedaCare, based on availability.

Health systems across Wisconsin are working through the logistics to provide vaccines. The amount of vaccine health systems receive from the federal and state government will determine how quickly we can vaccinate eligible groups.

We appreciate the community’s patience as we continue working through vaccine administration. Our goal is to ensure a smooth, easy process for all who choose to receive their vaccine.

Symptoms of the COVID-19 vaccine are mild and considered to be a normal reaction to vaccination. The following common side effects typically occur within the first 3 days and subside in a 1-2 day time frame:

ThedaCare is following the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC) recommendation that even those individuals who have had COVID-19 should receive the vaccination. People should wait until they are no longer infectious to get vaccinated.

The CDC released guidelines for those who have been full vaccinated for COVID-19. The CDC defines people who are fully vaccinated as those who are two weeks past their second dose of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, or two weeks past a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The new CDC guidance says fully vaccinated people can:

  • Visit other vaccinated people indoors without masks or physical distancing.
  • Visit indoors with unvaccinated people from a single household without masks or physical distancing, if the unvaccinated people are at low risk for severe disease.
  • If you’ve been around someone who has COVID-19, you do not need to quarantine from others or get tested unless you have symptoms.

The guidelines say fully vaccinated people should:

  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others
  • Avoid medium or large-sized gatherings
  • Avoid poorly ventilated spaces
  • Wash your hands often
