Agnesian HealthCare, a member of SSM Health, is offering simplified online self-scheduling for adults seeking COVID-19 first-dose vaccination appointments. The new web-based platform at agnesian.com/vaccine is open to all Wisconsinites, whether they are current Agnesian HealthCare patients or not.
This new application offers people the most efficient way to schedule a vaccination appointment at a time and location that is most convenient for them. If a second dose is required, caregivers will schedule that appointment at the time of the first vaccination.
Currently, only the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is recommended for individuals aged 16 to 17. Individuals in that age group should schedule by phone to ensure they select a vaccination location that can provide the appropriate Pfizer vaccinations.
The Agnesian HealthCare COVID-19 vaccination phone line is (920) 926-8400 weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The COVID-19 vaccination online scheduling application allows everyone 18 and older to filter for a nearby Agnesian HealthCare location when selecting their appointment time. Individuals with SSM Health MyChart accounts also can continue to use MyChart for their appointment selection.
There are still openings from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 10 for a mass vaccination clinic which will feature the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Call today to schedule the one-time dose vaccine for this specific event.
MyChart users also have the option to select a new feature called “Hello Patient” which recognizes their digital device through geolocation when they arrive at the vaccination clinic location. It will allow them to complete their check-in process on their digital device instantly to bypass any wait at registration, streamlining their vaccination appointment.
For those who do not have online access or who require a second dose of vaccine but do not already have an appointment, Agnesian HealthCare will continue to offer appointment scheduling by phone. Due to the influx of people now eligible for vaccinations, callers may experience lengthy wait times for assistance with vaccination appointments.
We ask individuals seeking COVID-19 vaccinations to schedule online or use the COVID-19 scheduling phone lines rather than calling their primary care provider or clinic. Our clinical location phone lines are needed for patients with active symptoms or acute care needs.
Agnesian HealthCare’s ability to vaccinate continues to depend on vaccine supplies. We are proactively working to offer vaccinations as efficiently and equitably as possible. In addition to our medical clinic appointments, we have developed innovative ways to vaccinate people throughout our communities in collaboration with public health agencies, school districts and employers of eligible public-facing essential workers with mobile clinics.
As of April 1, 2021, SSM Health in Wisconsin has administered more than 160,000 doses of vaccine, helping to make Wisconsin a national leader in vaccination efficiency.
