Wisconsin Center now offers walk-in Covid-19 vaccinations; thousands available

It's never been easier to get a Covid-19 vaccine in Milwaukee. Last week all Wisconsin residents age 16 and up became eligible for the vaccine, and just days later the City of Milwaukee Health Department tweeted that "vaccine supply is no longer a limiting factor," meaning there's now plenty of vaccines to go around.

That surplus supply means that the Wisconsin Center's mass vaccination site is changing how it operates. The site has the capacity to vaccinate 4,000 people per day, but has only been averaging 2,000, WISN reports. As a result, it is now offering walk-ins. Previously people had to schedule appointments ahead of time.

The vaccination site at 400 W. Wisconsin Ave. is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. Appointments can still be made online for those who prefer them.

The vaccinations are available to anybody who lives, works or studies in Wisconsin, regardless of immigration status. No photo ID or insurance required.

There's even free parking, and workers are available to assist anybody who needs help with mobility, transportation or language barriers.
