Brothers and sisters, the COVID-19 vaccine is now being made available for people 65 and older. We have made the information available online to aid in household awareness and decision-making. Keep in mind that supplies are limited and that it may take some time to be vaccinated, even if you register early.
Getting the Vaccine
- The vaccine will be either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
- You should talk to your primary healthcare provider before making an appointment — they may get it to you faster.
- Registration online is only open on Mondays and fills up fast. Check the following Monday if registration is closed.
- Soon after submitting a form, the county will get in touch with you.
- If you go through this website, vaccines are only available for residents of Washington or Ozaukee counties who are 65 years of age or older.
- If you’re in another county, please contact your county’s local health department or the Wisconsin DHS for more guidance.
You can sign up online using this link: http://www.washozwi.gov/
For a helpful Lutheran perspective on receiving the vaccine, please take a look at the letter published by Matthew Harrison, LCMS Synodical President, which provides thoughtful responses to common questions with a faithful viewpoint in mind. You can view the letter HERE.
Keep the process, our medical care workers, and the people of Wisconsin and the world in your prayers as we wait on God’s provision and mercy in the face of the pandemic. We know that all healing ultimately comes from the Lord — He is our rock and our redeemer.
