COVID-19 vaccination is a key factor in the health and safety of the UWM campus community. It is crucial to stay up to date on vaccine doses, particularly booster shots.
UWM, in partnership with the Milwaukee Health Department, is hosting walk-in vaccination clinics at the UWM Student Union. The clinics are open to UWM students, faculty and staff, as well as community members.
Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are available, including separate Pfizer pediatric doses for children 5 to 11 years old.
Booster doses are available for all eligible individuals who are age 5 and older, as well as first and second doses of vaccines. The recently approved boosters that protect against Omicron variants will be offered to eligible individuals. Find out when you can get a booster at this CDC booster portal.
Please bring your vaccine card or proof of vaccine via the Wisconsin Immunization Registry if you have received previous vaccinations.
Before arriving at the clinic, parents and guardians should pre-register their child and complete the consent at this Wisconsin Department of Health Services link.
