GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — Prevea Health announced Thursday it's partnering with the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay to launch community COVID-19 vaccine clinics in Green Bay and Sheboygan.
The clinics will be located at the Kress Events Center on the UW-Green Bay campus in Green Bay and in the gymnasium of the UW-Green Bay, Sheboygan Campus in Sheboygan. The clinics are expected to open late January and early February, Prevea Health says.
Currently, Prevea Health says the Wisconsin Department of Health Services has directed health care systems across the state to vaccinate only those they have designated to be in the Phase 1A category, which are health care providers and skilled nursing facility staff and residents.
“Securing these locations on the university campuses now ensures we will be ready to begin vaccinating members of the community as soon as the Wisconsin Department of Health Services gives us the green light to begin vaccinating those who fall under what DHS will define as the Phase 1B category, and all the phases that will follow,” said Dr. Ashok Rai, President and CEO of Prevea Health.
Prevea Health states in a news release that more details will become available on dates and who is in the next phase to be vaccinated as determined by DHS. Vaccine appointments will be required; in the meantime, Prevea encourages patients and members of the public to create a MyPrevea account at myprevea.com as this is where vaccine scheduling will be available.
