Press Release

WASHBURN COUNTY -- Due to increased availability of public COVID-19 vaccine clinics in the area as well as decreased demand for vaccination via Washburn County area providers, the last public first-dose COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be this Friday, April 30 through the Washburn County Health Department.

Indianhead Medical Center, Spooner Health, and the Washburn County Health Department will no longer be holding first-dose COVID-19 vaccine clinics for the general public beginning May 3, 2021.
