Green County COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Green County Public Health is actively vaccinating the community against COVID-19. 

As of March 1st, 2021:

Public Vaccinations for 65+ Are Underway 

At this time 64.5% of Green County residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. This data and more is available on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website. 

In the weeks to come Green County Public Health will continue to host vaccine clinics for eligible populations as vaccine availability allows. Individuals who are currently eligible and interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine can fill out our Tier 1A Interest Form. Please visit our website for updates regarding future vaccine clinics. 

Green County Public Health has hosted three mass vaccination clinics for people 65 years of age and older. In the weeks to come we will continue to host vaccine clinics for people that live or work in Green County and are currently eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine under the Wisconsin State Medical Advisory Committee prioritization guidelines as vaccine availability allows. Please visit our website to make an appointment. Individuals unable to attend this clinic can fill out our Tier 1A Interest Form. Please visit our website and follow us on Facebook for updates regarding future vaccine clinics. 

Monroe Clinic is working hard to vaccinate people age 65+ as quickly, efficiently and equitably as possible. Individuals who are currently eligible to be vaccinated can call Monroe Clinic’s COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 608-324-1815 to schedule their vaccine. The line is available Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. 

We understand that many people are eager to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. We ask for everyone’s patience as we schedule vaccinations for those eligible community members. Monroe Clinic continues to experience higher than normal call volumes. If you receive a busy signal or out of service message, we ask that you try again later.

Monroe Hometown Pharmacy West has appointments available for people who will become eligible on March 1st, as well as those who are currently eligible (people 65+, healthcare workers, fire/police personnel, etc.) Please 608-426-6540 call to make an appointment. 

Walgreens in Monroe will be giving COVID 19 vaccine by appointment only. Appointments can be made at www.walgreens.com. 

Tier 1B Eligibility 

Around March 1st, 2021 additional groups of people will become eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine based on recommendations from the Wisconsin State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee. Green County Public Health, Monroe Clinic and other local vaccine providers are partnering on a strategic plan to vaccinate these group members based on state guidance and vaccine supply. We are monitoring DHS recommendations and are striving for vaccine clinics for educators and childcare providers in the first two weeks of March. 

It’s important to remember that when additional groups become eligible not everyone in that group will be able to get vaccinated on the first day that they are eligible. It will take time to vaccinate everyone, and we appreciate everyone’s patience during this time.  

Continuing to remain vigilant. As many await vaccines, we encourage our communities to not let their guard down. We’ve come a long way, but this isn’t over yet! We thank our community members for continuing to: 

  • Wear a mask
  • Maintain social distancing 
  • Wash their hands 
  • Avoid gathering with people from different households
