Here are some of the many places you can get a free booster shot in Milwaukee this week
The swift spread of the highly contagious omicron variant, which has caused mass closures across New York City and just led to that city's highest single-day Covid-19 case total of the entire pandemic, has created newfound urgency for those seeking booster shots. In Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Public Market is making it a little easier for people to get one.
The Milwaukee Public Market is hosting a free vaccination clinic this afternoon from 3-6 p.m. on its second level. Attendees can pre-register or walk-in. They should bring an ID and an insurance card.
