With warmer temperatures and wonderful spring scenery, schedules are quickly filling with gardening and yard work, safe outdoor activities like walking and biking, and backyard barbecues. In addition to other day-to-day tasks, time can be tight some days and it can be challenging to fit everything that needs to be complete within a given day.
At the same time, it remains increasingly important to help continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 pandemic through vaccinations. That’s why the Agnesian HealthCare vaccine clinics in Fond du Lac, Ripon and Waupun are now accepting walk-in visits for individuals over age 18 at their weekday clinics. Walk-ins are accepted from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Clinics are available:
- Monday through Friday, Fond du Lac
- Tuesdays & Fridays, Ripon
- Wednesdays & Thursdays, Waupun
The clinics feature the two-dose Moderna vaccine. Participants do not need to be Agnesian HealthCare patients.
For those who want to schedule their vaccine appointments ahead of time, they can schedule same-day appointments for the COVID-19 either by calling (920) 926-8400 or 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.
Individuals with SSM Health MyChart accounts can also continue to use MyChart for their appointment selection.
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.
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. Clinical location phone lines are needed for patients with active symptoms or acute care needs.
