Did you receive a phone call from a local number Monday evening? It may have been a message from me regarding COVID-19 vaccines. You can read the text of the call here and below: http://bit.ly/MayorBrooksCall05032021
Good evening, this is South Milwaukee Mayor Erik Brooks with important news on the Health Department’s COVID-19 vaccination efforts.
The South Milwaukee/St. Francis, Cudahy, and Oak Creek health departments continue to staff a South Shore COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the former K-Mart store in Cudahy.
We have plenty of vaccine supply, and we are making it as easy as possible to get vaccines.
To sign up to receive the vaccine through our clinic, please visit the city’s website at smwi.org and click on the COVID-19 alert at the top. Our preference is that you sign up for your vaccine this way. If you are unable to schedule an appointment online, you may call the Health Department at 414-768-8055.
Walk-in opportunities are also now available many days, including during select times every day this week.
To see the specific times when you can walk in this week, and to see future walk-in opportunities, please visit our website and social media accounts. You also may call the Health Department for exact days and times when walk-in spots are available.
We are also offering a free COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic for students, parents and the community on Wednesday, May 12, at South Milwaukee High School. You can get more details on the city website.
Please, South Milwaukee, get the shot. More than 8,500 South Milwaukeeans have already received at least one dose of the vaccine, but we can’t stop there. We need to get more shots in arms if we are going to truly beat COVID-19.
Our team stands ready to help. Please join me in thanking our Health Department and all of the city employees who are coordinating these efforts.
Stay healthy, South Milwaukee. Good bye.
