COVID-19

We’re all connected—by our health, by our actions, and by our commitment to each other. It is up to each of us to take simple steps, like staying home and wearing a mask, to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our community from COVID-19. Your actions can help protect everyone in Wisconsin.

CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic.

COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Benefits of Getting Vaccinated

There are many reasons to get the COVID-19 vaccine.  You’re considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 two weeks after you’ve received either a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson, or the second dose of a two-dose vaccine like Pfizer or Moderna. 

  • COVID-19 vaccination will help keep you from getting severely sick, being hospitalized, or dying from COVID-19.
  • Getting vaccinated can help protect people around you.
  • COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
  • None of the COVID-19 vaccines will cause you to become sick with COVID-19 or test positive on a viral test (PCR or antigen).
  • COVID-19 vaccination is an important tool to help stop the pandemic.
  • COVID-19 vaccines offer protection against variants of SARS-CoV-2 and can help prevent future, possibly more dangerous, variants from developing. 
  • Vaccination is a safer way to help build protection than getting COVID-19.
  • You do NOT need to quarantine if you have close contact with someone with COVID-19. 
  • Once you’re fully vaccinated, you can feel safer doing the things you love. In outdoor settings and indoor settings in areas of low or moderate community transmission, if you are fully vaccinated, you can feel safer engaging in social situations without wearing a mask or practicing physical distancing.
