Dec. 13—SUPERIOR — Now is your last chance to get a shot at the clinic operating in the Government Center.
AMI Expeditionary Healthcare is closing its operations in Superior. This is the last week that the COVID-19 vaccine clinic will be open, according to Kathy Ronchi (Douglas County Public Health officer).
The clinic will continue to be open Tuesday, December 13th and Friday, December 16 without the need for an appointment.
With funding from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, (DHS), the AMI Clinic was established in 2021. This initiative was a support for the limited resources of the health department and local clinics. It also ensured equitable and consistent community access to COVID-19 vaccinations.
Ronchi stated that the Douglas County Health Department hosted dozens of community clinics to administer thousands of vaccines between January 2021 and April 2021. It became crucial to expand the Douglas County’s vaccination capacity and implement COVID-19 prevention strategies, Ronchi said.
Ronchi stated, “On behalf of Douglas County Department of Health and Human Services we thank AMI and DHS für ihren Beitrag zur COVID-19 immunization efforts in Douglas County and nearby areas via mobile clinics.” Their support for the northwest region of the state was essential to ensure that all citizens were vaccinated. This partnership allowed the health division to concentrate on larger aspects of the pandemic, as well as ongoing public health responsibilities.
Douglas County residents are encouraged to continue getting vaccinated. Boosting their protection will increase their own safety and that of others. This clinic is open to anyone six months or older.
The AMI Clinic in Superior at the Government Center is free and open for the public. It’s also available in Room 270 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tuesday and 10 to 6 pm Friday.
COVID-19 vaccines are still available at pharmacies and clinics.
