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 in the Union Ballroom. The clinics are open to UWM students, faculty and staff, as well as community members.
Pfizer, Moderna and J&J vaccines are available, including separate Pfizer pediatric doses for children 5 to 11 years old.
Booster doses are available for all individuals who are 12 and older, as well as first and second doses of vaccines. Please bring your vaccine card or proof of vaccine via the Wisconsin Immunization Registry if you have received previous vaccinations. For booster doses, it must be at least five months since receiving the primary vaccines series with Pfizer or Moderna or at least two months since receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
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.
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’ll be able to provide demographic and other information ahead of the clinic. (In addition, preregistration allows sign-up at alternative, appointment-only clinics in the metro area.)
