Thanks to more abundant supplies, Agnesian HealthCare, a member of SSM Health, is now offering same-day appointments for the COVID-19 vaccines at its Fond du Lac, Ripon and Waupun locations.
Adults seeking a Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 first-dose appointment are encouraged to call (920) 926-8400 or through a simplified online scheduling platform at agnesian.com/vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccination phone line is available weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Calls after those times will be returned next business day.
The Fond du Lac location is open for appointments Monday through Friday, with Ripon and Waupun each operating two days a week.
“Agnesian HealthCare and SSM Health are grateful to be receiving additional vaccine supplies so that we can continue to vaccinate many more people throughout our communities,” says Mo Kharbat, SSM Health vice president of Pharmacy Services. “We hope we can keep moving closer to achieving herd immunity against this virus.”
Currently, only the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is authorized for individuals aged 16 to 17. Individuals in that age group should schedule by phone to ensure they select a vaccination location that can provide the appropriate Pfizer vaccinations.
At their vaccination appointment, 16 and 17 year old individuals either will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to give consent for the vaccination or bring a parent or guardian signed consent form with them.
The vaccination online scheduling application allows everyone age 18 and older to filter for a nearby Agnesian HealthCare location when selecting their appointment time. Individuals with SSM Health MyChart accounts can also continue to use MyChart for their appointment selection.
Individuals seeking COVID-19 vaccinations are asked to schedule online or use the COVID-19 scheduling phone line rather than calling their primary care provider or clinic. Our clinical location phone lines are needed for patients with active symptoms or acute care needs.
Agnesian HealthCare is proactively working to offer vaccinations as efficiently and equitably as possible. In addition to our medical clinic appointments, we have developed innovative ways to vaccinate people throughout our communities in collaboration with public health agencies, school districts and employers of eligible public-facing essential workers with mobile clinics.
As of April 20, 2021, SSM Health in Wisconsin has administered more than 205,843 doses of vaccine, helping to make Wisconsin a national leader in vaccination efficiency.
