Wisconsin Center now serving as walk-in vaccination clinic
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Center is now a walk-in vaccination clinic.
Previously, people had to schedule appointments online or by calling a hotline.
But the health department just announced you no longer have to book an appointment ahead of time.
"Right now, we have a couple thousand available every day. Any time that you want to come in, we can get you in," said Celia Shaughnessy, Wisconsin Center site coordinator.
"I'm a college student, I want to go out and be able to do stuff and live my life," said Davin Rauser, who received a shot at the Wisconsin Center Monday.
Joe Weinshel also received a shot at the site. He took advantage of the walk-in option.
"I tried calling Walgreens, hey had free, ya know, and there's an online thing and I just couldn't make the appointments, screwed up, so when I heard on tv that they had walk-ins, I did it. It was awesome."
The site is open to anyone who lives, works, or studies in Wisconsin. The hours are Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Another important thing to note -- there is free parking at the Wisconsin Center over on W. Wells Street.
There is also overflow parking in a surface lot at 4th and Wisconsin.
