Officials expect community clinic to open mid-April

Siinto S. Wessman Arena, located on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Superior, was recently selected as the site of a new COVID-19 community vaccine clinic.

This Douglas County Public Health vaccine clinic will be run by a team from a company called AMI Expeditionary Healthcare who will provide staff and materials. This team will be shared with Barron County and will split its time between the two locations to administer the vaccine.

The site, which is scheduled to open in mid-April, will follow state guidelines to vaccinate populations based on eligibility. These community clinics are located throughout Wisconsin in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, UW System, AMI, and local health departments, vaccinators and governments.

The new COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Wessman Arena will not impact any UW-Superior student activities or sporting events. Spring commencement will be held in a virtual format.

Additional information about the COVID-19 vaccine clinic and how to make an appointment will soon be available on the Douglas County Public Health website.

UW-Superior, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and UW System, continues to host a free COVID-19 testing site for anyone 5 years of age and older in the Marcovich Wellness Center. Registration for a free test can be completed at www.doineedacovid19test.com.
