FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 04/28/2021 LAST WASHBURN COUNTY PUBLIC COVID-19 VACCINATION CLINIC FRIDAY
4/30
Due to increased availability of public COVID-19 vaccine clinics in the area as well as decreased
demand for
vaccination via Washburn County area providers, the last public first-dose COVID-19 vaccination
clinic will be this Friday, April 30 through the Washburn County Health Department.

Indianhead Medical Center, Spooner Health, and the Washburn County Health Department will no longer
be holding first-dose COVID-19 vaccine clinics for the general public beginning May 3, 2021. This
does not impact previously scheduled second dose appointments. Northlakes Community Clinic and
Essentia Health are continuing to vaccinate their existing patients.

If you are interested in receiving your COVID-19 vaccine in Spooner, the Washburn County Health
Department is holding its last first-dose Moderna clinic this Friday, April 30 at 850 W Beaverbrook
Ave. in Spooner. Anyone 18 and older who lives, works, or attends school in Wisconsin is eligible
for vaccination at this clinic. You do not have to be a Washburn County resident to make an
appointment. Registration is available online at https://www.washburncodisaster.org/. If you are
unable to utilize online registration, please call 715-635-4402 and leave a message with your name
and number. Health Department staff will return your call to schedule you as long as appointments
are available.

through Saturday from 11:00AM-7:00PM in Rice Lake and Superior. Anyone ages 16 and older can

The Washburn County Health Department will be holding second dose Moderna vaccine clinics through
May 28. Individuals who wish to be on a wait list for the second dose of the Moderna vaccine should
