Nearly 18,300 COVID-19 vaccine doses given at community vaccination site in La Crosse

The site was one of six in Wisconsin

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – La Crosse area Health leaders are celebrating the impact of the city’s community COVID- 19 vaccination site.

Since opening in March, the site which closed Friday at the UW-La Crosse, provided nearly 18,300 vaccine doses.

It was one of six community sites in the state.

“When they started, the vaccine was a scarce resource and was difficult to manage. And here we are. So things are opening back up. It was very helpful,” said La Crosse County Health Department COVID-19 vaccine coordinator.

There are still 50 vaccine providers within 50 miles of downtown La Crosse.

You can find a list of options on the CDC’s website.
