March 1 Update: Although the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has announced that new groups will be eligible to be vaccinated on March 1, the State has emphasized that vaccine providers should prioritize previously eligible groups before newer groups. Both State and County plans do not anticipate vaccine becoming available to additional groups until mid-March.

Find out if you're eligible for vaccination, and when you can expect access to vaccine.

Read Waukesha County's news release about prioritizing groups.
