SPOONER, WI -- In order to better serve our community, Spooner Health is announcing an improved vaccine clinic scheduling update.
Appointment scheduling for public COVID-19 vaccine clinics will not open until Mondays at 9:00 a.m. for clinics being held that week. We are not guaranteed to receive the amount of vaccine we request from the state and we will not know how much vaccine we will receive for the week until the Friday before registration opens. A public announcement will be posted on our Facebook page (@SpoonerHealth) as well as our website (www.SpoonerHealth.com) and sent to the Spooner Advocate and DrydenWire if a vaccine clinic is not being held the next week by Friday at 5:00 p.m. Otherwise, appointment scheduling will open Mondays at 9:00 a.m. for clinics being held that week.
You will be able to schedule online by visiting www.SpoonerHealth.com/Vaccine. We do not have a wait list and you will not be able to schedule an appointment before registration opens. Phone calls for registration will not be accepted – please do not call Spooner Health to register for the vaccine clinics. We will have a limited amount of vaccine available each week. Appointments are required for vaccination at Spooner Heath and are on a first-come first-serve basis.
Per the joint press release published on February 24, Spooner Health along with Indianhead Medical Center and Washburn County Health Department are continuing to focus our efforts on vaccinating the 65 and older population. If you are not over the age of 65, you will not be eligible for a vaccine at any of the above vaccinating entities. Once a critical mass of the 65 and older population has been vaccinated, we will open vaccination to the next eligible groups. K-12 institutions and childcare providers will be coordinating with local and state health officials to schedule vaccination when vaccine supply allows.
