VMH is excited to announce we will be hosting COVID-19 vaccination opportunities for PATIENTS AGES 65 AND OLDER as part of the current priority phase group.
APPOINTMENTS ARE MANDATORY and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis; no walk-ins will be accepted.
Upcoming vaccination dates:

We are thankful for the urgency so many of our community members have shown to be vaccinated. We will do our best to provide more dates, dependent on state vaccine allocations, to best serve our community.
Additional vaccination dates are being determined. We will provide updated information on this page as it becomes available.

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.
Note: If you live in a skilled nursing or assisted living facility, please do not make an appointment at Vernon Memorial Healthcare. Your local pharmacy will come to you to administer the vaccine.
The 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
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 identification with you to your appointment.
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
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we continue to vaccinate our local community members. While the vaccination process moves forward, we urge our community to continue practicing the three W’s: Wear a mask, Watch your distance, and Wash your hands.
When the next priority phases are announced, and VMH is prepared to begin vaccination, we'll update this section to include more information.
