COVID-19 vaccination is a key factor in the health and safety of the UWM campus community.
UWM is partnering with the Milwaukee Health Department to host walk-in vaccination clinics during October. Clinics will be held at the UWM Student Union in the Wisconsin Room.
Pfizer vaccine will be available. Booster doses are available for individuals who are eligible, in addition to individuals receiving their first or second dose of vaccine. Please bring your vaccine card or proof of vaccine via the Wisconsin Immunization Registry if you have received previous vaccinations.
These are walk-in clinics, however, to save time on the day of the clinic, it’s recommended that individuals pre-register with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Individuals won’t see UWM’s walk-in clinics listed once they’re pre-registered, but they will then be able to sign up for an appointment at any other Wisconsin public health-sponsored vaccine clinics in the area, as an alternative to UWM’s walk-in clinics.
