COVID-19 Vaccine

The Cudahy Health Department wants to keep the community up-to-date on the latest vaccine information.
To sign-up to receive COVID-19 Vaccine email updates, please complete this form
These email updates will be used to communicate when vaccine clinic appointments become available. Once you receive an email with information about available appointments, you will need to click on the included link to register for an appointment.

*Disclaimer: This is NOT a sign up for an appointment to receive the vaccine or to be added to a waitlist. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to receive a vaccine from the South Shore Health Departments as vaccine supplies are limited. As vaccine supply increases, vaccines will be available to eligible individuals through several locations including healthcare providers and pharmacies.

COVID-19 vaccines are now available to limited groups of individuals. Recommendations for which groups are eligible to receive the vaccine first are made by the federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Wisconsin State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee (SDMAC). For more specific information, please see the Phase 1A SDMAC guidance.

COVID-19 vaccines are currently available for the following groups and individuals:

  • Phase 1a individuals and groups including,
    • frontline healthcare workers
    • EMS
    • Individuals who live or work in long-term care facilities
  • Police and fire personnel, correctional staff
  • Adults ages 65 and older
Eligible Groups for Vaccination__1677689

Approved vaccinators are working as quickly as possible to provide vaccine to all eligible individuals, but vaccine supply remains very limited. If your Cudahy organization employs eligible Phase 1A staff or if you are an independent provider eligible for vaccine in Phase 1A:

  • Check with your organization to determine if they have a plan for employee vaccination
  • If your organization is not connected with a vaccinating entity, please complete the survey located on the HealthyMKE website to be connected with an approved COVID-19 vaccinator
  • If you are an independent provider and are not connected with a vaccinating entity, please complete the survey located here to be connected with an approved COVID-19 vaccinating entity
  • Once the survey is complete, you or your organization will be matched with an entity that is able to provide COVID-19 vaccine. You will be contacted as vaccine and clinic appointments become available.
  • You can also contact the Cudahy Health Department at (414) 769-2239 with any questions.

In addition, individuals who are 65 and older will become eligible for COVID-19 vaccine on January 25, 2021. These individuals will be able to access the vaccine through their health care provider, pharmacy, or local health department. The Cudahy Health Department currently has a very limited supply of vaccine and continued to work on vaccinating all eligible Phase 1A individuals.  The Health Department does not yet know when we will be able to begin vaccinating individuals aged 65 and older. We encourage adults aged 65 and older to contact their primary care provider as we expect many older adults will be vaccinated by a healthcare provider.

The Cudahy health department is planning to host community clinics in the near future, when a supply of vaccines becomes available to us.

At this time, the list of individuals who will be eligible for vaccine in Phase 1B has not been finalized.

COVID-19 vaccine will likely not be available to the general public until spring 2021 or later.  There is not a waiting list for individuals to sign up to receive COVID-19 vaccines or any action that you need to take at this time. Please continue to monitor the Cudahy Health Department website and social media as well as local media outlets for information about when additional individuals will be eligible for vaccine.

Although vaccine is slowly becoming available, we all still need to take the necessary precautions to prevent getting or spreading COVID-19. Please stay home when you’re sick, continue to wear masks, limit indoor gatherings, practice physical distancing, and wash your hands often. The combination of a vaccine and prevention measures will help us as we slowly return to “normal.”

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services will be launching a weekly newsletter to provide updates on COVID-19 response and vaccine rollout in Wisconsin.  If you’re interested in receiving the newsletter, sign up here.
