Eligible people should register for COVID-19 vaccines

By Kenyon Bennett
COVID-19 vaccination options have not changed from last week. Currently eligible groups may register to be vaccinated. One registration option is on the Iowa County Government website at https://www.iowacounty.org/ departments/COVID-19/VaccineInformation. If you don't know if you are eligible, read the listing on the same webpage. If you qualify, follow the prompts for SignUp Genius registration. If you have questions, email Iowa County Health Department at healthinfo@iowacounty.org.
To receive COVID-19 vaccinations at Upland Hills Health, see https://uplandhillshealth.org/patient-visitors/covid-19/. Registrants should be among currently eligible groups. Follow the prompts for SignUp Genius registration or call 608-930-7224 to leave a message.
Corner Drug Hometown Pharmacy offers COVID-19 vaccines when supplies are available. You must register to be on the wait list. An associate from the pharmacy will call you to set up your vaccination appointment after a vaccine shipment has arrived, and it is your turn. Because supplies are limited, the wait list could become long. If you do not have computer access, call 608-935-3661 for an associate to place you on the wait list. If you have a computer, see hometownpharmacyrx.com. Press "COVID-19 Vaccine" on the banner. A new screen comes up. Next, select Dodgeville as the location site. Last, complete the online form. For registrants who want to download and print a form, see the bottom of the page where locations are listed. Follow the prompt.
Walgreens pharmacies at 1133 N. Johns St., Dodgeville, 608-935-2041, and 675 S. Water St., 608-348-7611, Platteville, receive a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines. You must meet current group eligibility requirements to receive a vaccination. Go to https://www.walgreens.com/findcare/vaccination/covid-19/location-screening. Enter the zip code for the Walgreens location where you want your vaccine. Press "search." If the website says that appointments are available, press "See if you're eligible" tab. Next, sign in to your account or create a new account now. Continue to follow the prompts, the website indicated.
Wisconsin Department of Health Services listed its currently eligible groups: frontline healthcare personnel, residents and staff in skilled nursing and long-term care facilities, police and fire personnel, correctional staff, adults age 65 and older, educators and childcare workers, individuals enrolled in Medicaid long-term care programs, some public-facing essential workers, non-frontline essential healthcare personnel, congregate living facility staff and residents, and individuals with certain medical conditions. See https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/
covid-19/vaccine-about.htm for a detailed listing for each category. "DHS anticipates that Wisconsin will be able to open eligibility on May 1 to include anyone age 16 and older," its website said.
