OSHKOSH (NBC 26) — A community COVID-19 vaccination center is now open to eligible members of the public at UW Oshkosh. This is done by appointment only on the university’s campus.
This week, eligible healthcare workers, essential workers and others in Phase 1A are being vaccinated at the site on a limited basis.
“I have 14 grandchildren. I want to be around as long as possible,” said James Herzig, a senior vaccination participant.
The site began taking appointments for the full opening at the beginning of this week. No walk-ins will be accepted.
UWO said in a press release the vaccination center on the Oshkosh campus is one of four on UW campuses announced last month by UW System President Tommy Thompson.
After touring the Oshkosh center on Friday, Gov. Tony Evers signed a bill that will allow more people with certain qualifications to administer vaccines.
