YOUR VACCINATION CARD

  • You may also visit the Wisconsin Immunization Registry for an electronic version.
  • When taking pictures or posting selfies about getting your COVID-19 vaccine, do not post photos of your vaccination card online so your health information is protected.
  • Do not laminate your vaccination card.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO GET A VACCINE?

  • Everyone in Wisconsin age 12 and older is able to get the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at no cost.
  • Everyone in Wisconsin age 18 and older is able to get the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at no cost.

WHY DO WE NEED A VACCINE?

Getting vaccinated will be one of the best ways to protect yourself and your community. Updates from the CDC show that vaccines are working in the real world. Available evidence suggests the currently approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective against hospitalization and death for a variety of strains. Click here for more information.

WHO SHOULD GET ADDITIONAL OR BOOSTER DOSES?

CDC recommends that people whose immune systems are compromised moderately to severely should receive an additional dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine to be administered at least 4 weeks after a second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.  Click here for more information.

WI DHS has authorized booster doses for those who got both doses of the PFIZER vaccine at least 6 months ago and are at higher risk of getting or spreading COVID-19.

Those who SHOULD receive a booster dose of PFIZER:
Those who MAY receive a booster dose of PFIZER:
  • People ages 18–49 years with certain underlying medical conditions
  • People ages 18–64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of their job or institutional settings. Occupations at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission include front line essential workers and health care workers

WHICH VACCINES HAVE BEEN APPROVED?

The FDA has given full approval to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for those 16 years of age and older. The vaccine also continues to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA), including for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals.The Moderna and Jonhson & Johnson vaccines are available under emergency use authorizations (EUAs).

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON THE JOHNSON & JOHNSON (JANSSEN) VACCINE:

The FDA and CDC have confidence that this vaccine is safe and effective, and that the pause on administering the vaccine was lifted after an extensive safety review by independent experts.
There is a risk, primarily for women ages 18-49, of a very rare but severe type of blood clotting. Click here for more information.


WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER GETTING THE VACCINE?

You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Some people have no side effects. Click here for more information.
