City of Milwaukee Health Department Hosts School Vaccine Clinics

MILWAUKEE – Beginning Monday, November 8, the Milwaukee Health Department will partner with Milwaukee Public Schools, Seton Catholic Schools, and Children’s Wisconsin to vaccinate Milwaukee-area children. These 22 community clinics will primarily focus on vaccinating the newly-eligible 5 to 11 year old demographic but will also offer first, second, and booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for any eligible individual without an appointment. All children under the age of 18 will require parent or guardian permission to receive the vaccine.

“Vaccination truly is a community effort,” said Milwaukee Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson. “We are grateful for organizations and community advocates like Milwaukee Public Schools, Seton Catholic Schools, and Children’s Wisconsin and their continued partnership and commitment to keeping our community and children healthy and protected against COVID-19.”

The Milwaukee Health Department will host one to two vaccine clinics per day from November 8 through November 23. Beginning November 29, the same cycle of 22 schools will repeat to administer second doses. All second dose clinics will be finished on December 14. This schedule will allow ten days after the second dose prior to the Christmas holiday and two weeks before the New Year's holiday for children to reach their full immune response.

“Milwaukee Public Schools has worked diligently to provide eligible students and staff access to the vaccinations that will protect our community from the dangers of COVID-19," said Dr. Posley, Superintendent of Milwaukee Public Schools. "The Milwaukee Health Department has been instrumental in providing these services and we are elated to continue this partnership as more of our young people become eligible for the vaccine. We will continue to work with MHD and all of our partners to support making vaccines accessible and available to our students and staff.”

“We are pleased to partner with the Milwaukee Health Department to provide easy access to COVID-19 vaccines for our students and their families by offering clinics at our Milwaukee schools this month,” said Melissa Benson, COVID-19 coordinator for Seton Catholic Schools. “Vaccines remain the most effective layer of protection from COVID-19, and we are grateful that a safe vaccine has been approved for children ages 5 to 11. In-person learning is vital to student academic success and these vaccine clinics will help keep students healthy and learning in the classroom.”

“Children’s Wisconsin — with additional support from our health insurance plan, Children’s Community Health Plan — is proud to support COVID-19 vaccination efforts of the Milwaukee Health Department at the community schools our nurses support,” said Dr. Bob Rohloff, pediatrician and medical director of health management and community services at Children’s Wisconsin. “We hope providing vaccination efforts in locations that are familiar to kids and more convenient to families will encourage more families to have their children vaccinated. We are ready to answer any questions families have and use our expertise in kids to help kids who may be nervous or not like needles.”
