Site opens Monday, Jan. 18 for individuals in Phase 1A
Bellin Health will open a COVID-19 vaccination site Monday, Jan. 18 at the Bellin Health Ashwaubenon clinic, 1630 Commanche Ave.
Vaccine prioritization is occurring in accordance with the guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Currently, vaccination is available to individuals in Phase 1A, which includes healthcare providers and skilled nursing facility residents and staff. Phase 1B will include essential workers and individuals aged 70-plus. More details about Phase 1B, including when it will begin, will be shared soon.
The new site will allow Bellin to vaccinate more individuals with a better logistical flow as additional phases open up, said Bellin Health President & CEO Chris Woleske.
“The arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine in our area is exciting news for our community, and we want to make it as easy as possible for eligible individuals to be vaccinated as rollout proceeds,” Woleske said. “This new site offers a convenient location and ease of parking and building access, making the vaccination process as simple as possible for those we serve.”
Individuals do not need to be Bellin Health patients to be vaccinated at the Ashwaubenon site. Vaccines scheduling will be available at MyBellin.org or by calling (920) 445-7313.
Please note: Only individuals who qualify for the current phase of vaccination will be able to schedule vaccines. Bellin patients and community members are encouraged to create their MyBellin accounts now for quick and easy scheduling when they are eligible to be vaccinated.
Individuals who arrive at the new site to be vaccinated should enter the Ashwaubenon clinic at the Northwest entrance and follow the signage to the vaccination location. Masking is required. After receiving their vaccine, individuals will need to wait 15 minutes for monitoring before departing.
Bellin Fitness members should note that a section of the turf will be closed for use during vaccination hours, 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The other portions of the Fitness Center will remain open for use.
Bellin Health currently is vaccinating individuals in Phase 1A at Bellin Memorial Hospital in Green Bay. Scheduled vaccinations will continue there for the time being and eventually transfer to the Ashwaubenon site.
Bellin Health will share additional details about vaccination prioritization and process as they become available. More information about COVID-19 and the vaccine is available at bellin.org/covid19.
