The Fond du Lac County Health Department is partnering with the National Guard to provide Pfizer booster vaccines to eligible individuals Friday, Oct. 15.
The drive-thru vaccination clinic will be at the Cow Palace on the Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or until capacity has been met.
The health department is encouraging individuals to register ahead of time to ensure short wait times by visiting www.vaccinate.wi.gov. No insurance, appointment, or ID required.
"Individuals do not need to select a location at the end of registration. Since it is a temporary clinic site, there are no appointments," said Sarah Faust, supervisor of Community Health & Prevention for the Fond du Lac County Health Department. "Individuals may receive a follow up email from the registration system encouraging them to schedule an appointment at a vaccine clinic location. This email can be disregarded.
"Pre-registration is encouraged to help keep the line moving the day of the clinic and reduce wait times. Individuals are not required to pre-register."
Individuals are eligible if they have completed their initial Pfizer series (2 doses) at least 6 months ago AND meet at least one of the below criteria:
- Ages 65+
- Ages 18-64 with certain medical conditions or live in long term care settings
- Employees and residents at increased risk
