Gundersen Health System can keep all first-dose vaccine appointments this week at our La Crosse and Onalaska locations. Gundersen regional vaccination locations continue to do well working through eligible patients, based on supply received from state and county sources.
Vaccine demand continues to exceed vaccine supply, but we expect to provide about, 3,000 first-and-second dose appointments this week system wide. Gundersen has given more than 20,000 first doses and more than 10,000 second doses system wide.
Patients who have their first dose vaccine appointments cancelled in recent weeks will be notified and prioritized for a rescheduled appointment as soon as supply allows.
We ask patients refrain from calling or emailing Gundersen about COVID-19 vaccine appointments or about vaccine availability or eligibility and urge them to visit gundersenhealth.org for the latest information.
Vaccine appointments at Gundersen are only available to patients who have received an appointment invitation through MyChart, letter or telephone call.
Gundersen encourages patients to receive the vaccination at another location, if they're able.
As a reminder, everyone who enters a Gundersen location must wear a mask and be screened for COVID-19 symptoms, including those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine.
