On April 5, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services made everyone age 16 and older eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. VMH has created a waitlist in response to this announcement.

Vernon Memorial Healthcare receives its supply of COVID-19 vaccine from the state of Wisconsin. If we do not have enough doses, we may have to cancel or reschedule your appointment. Thank you for understanding.
Before you receive your vaccine, you are required to complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Consent Form for Vernon Memorial Healthcare. Please review the document and complete it (if possible) prior to arriving for your appointment: https://www.vmh.org/media/kqlpujhk/covid-19-vaccine-consent-form-vernon-memorial-healthcare-patient-1-29-21.pdf
Vaccine doses are provided to all patients or community members at no out-of-pocket cost. However, there is an administration fee. The administration fee will be 100% paid by your health insurance plan, Medicare, Medicaid, Employer, or the Federal Government. Please bring your insurance card and/or identification with you to your appointment.
Vernon Memorial Healthcare will administer the vaccines made available to us by the state of Wisconsin.
The Moderna vaccine requires two doses. Your second dose will be scheduled in-person at the conclusion of your appointment. The second dose must be given where you receive your first dose. Please review the Emergency Use Authorization Fact Sheet and what you need to know before getting your Moderna vaccine: https://www.fda.gov/media/144638/download
After your vaccine, if you experience any side effects, please document them at vaers.hhs.gov and in the v-safe smartphone-based tool (if possible). Learn more at cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/vsafe.html
