WAUSAU (WAOW) — Marathon County's COVID-19 community vaccination clinic opens April 6.

According to a press release from Gov. Evers and the Department of Health Services, the clinic will be located at Northcentral Technical College—Center for Business and Industry Building in Wausau.

The clinic plans to administer at least 400 doses per day with the ability administer up to 1,000 doses a day. The amount that gets administered is dependent on vaccine allocation from the federal government.

The clinic will first schedule vaccinations for those on the Marathon County Health Department’s waitlist with priority for those who are age 65 and older, educators, and child care staff.

After those appointments are scheduled, the clinic will then begin scheduling appointments for anyone currently eligible for the vaccine.

All appointments must be made through the Wisconsin COVID-19 Vaccine Registry. After registration, eligible individuals will be notified of the opportunity to schedule their appointment when openings become available.

The clinics hours are from 11 am -7 pm on Tuesday through Saturday.

Marathon County was one of the four latest community vaccination locations to be announced, which are selected to address gaps in vaccine access. Various factors including population demographics, local health capacity, operations, and concentration of other vaccine providers are taken into consideration when planning for clinics.

The other locations are in  Rock County, La Crosse County and Racine County.
