What is the Wisconsin COVID-19 Vaccine Registry?
The Wisconsin COVID-19 Vaccine Registry allows Wisconsin residents to register for and schedule COVID-19 vaccinations locally – when they are eligible, and as vaccine becomes available. Those who are not eligible or unable to get an appointment have the option of being placed on a wait list. The vaccine registry will be used by those who opt in and will not be a comprehensive resource for all vaccination options.
Local and tribal health departments have the option of using the vaccine registry to help with safely and effectively distributing and administering COVID-19 vaccines. Not all vaccine providers using this system will be participating as of the launch date in early March, and more will be added over time.
The vaccine registry is now available. If you live in an area where the vaccine registry is available and have questions or need help registering, call (844) 684-1064 (toll-free) between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
The vaccine registry will connect you with available vaccine
If your local or tribal health department is participating in the vaccine registry, you will be able to fill out a questionnaire that determines if you are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and then be able to make an appointment. If you are not yet eligible to get the vaccine, or no appointments are currently available, you can be placed on a wait-list. The vaccine registry can also assist you with scheduling and reminding you about your second vaccine dose, and help you monitor for any symptoms after getting the vaccine.
The vaccine registry being used by:
- Green County Public Health
- La Crosse County Public Health (DHS community vaccination site in La Crosse County)
- Rock County Public Health (DHS community vaccination site in Rock County)
The following public health entities are testing the vaccine registry in their communities:
- City of Wauwatosa Health Department
- Marathon County Health Department
- Oneida County Public Health Department
Availability of the vaccine registry for other vaccinators
The vaccine registry will be available by April 1 for any other vaccinator who is not a local or tribal public health department. DHS will contact registered vaccinators at a later time to survey level of interest. Not all vaccinators will choose to use the vaccine registry software and may leverage their own systems.
