One of the most effective ways to stop the spread of COVID-19 is to get vaccinated. The good news is the vaccine is safe, effective, and free. You do not need an ID or insurance to get it.
There are several ways you can receive your COVID-19 vaccine. It’s easy to find the right option for you. Choose a vaccine provider in your community, locate the specific vaccine you want to receive, or find a vaccination site that’s conveniently close to home. Across our state, Wisconsin communities are working hard to make it easy for you to protect yourself and others.
COVID-19 Vaccine Scams
DHS has received recent reports of Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine scam emails and text messages that ask recipients to complete a survey about the vaccine in exchange for a "free reward” or to verify their vaccination. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) posts alerts on its webpage, Coronavirus Advice for Consumers, about COVID-19 scams. A recent article warns about potential vaccination certification scams.
Where to get the vaccine
While the options in every community are different, there are many places you can go to get your free COVID-19 vaccine. They may include:
- Your employer
- Your local or tribal health department
- Community-based vaccination clinics
- Pop-up clinics at familiar places in your community
- Your doctor or health care provider
You can also get vaccinated at home if you have difficulty leaving home. This includes if you have mobility concerns or need extra help getting a COVID-19 vaccine or booster. Call 211 or contact your local health department or Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) for help getting a COVID-19 vaccine at home or elsewhere.
