A vial of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine is prepared at an Eau Claire vaccination clinic for front-line health care workers in November.

The Dunn County Health Department is asking people eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 1A and Phase 1B to make appointments if they want the vaccine.

Eligible right now in Wisconsin are health care workers, long-term care facility staff and residents, EMS workers, fire and police workers and people 65 and older.

The Health Department said these options are available for vaccine appointments:

  • Advent Health in Durand: People do not need to have a doctor at Advent Health to receive the vaccine; they only have to be on the waiting list. To get on the waiting list call Durand Clinic North at 715-672-5981 or Durand Clinic South at 715-672-5233.

The Health Department asked people to make their appointments online if they can, so phone appointments are available for people without internet access.

It also warned people not to make multiple appointments at several vaccine clinics, saying that it could cause doses to be wasted.
