The South Milwaukee and St. Francis Health Department has COVID-19 booster clinics planned for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both Monday in Cudahy and Wednesday in St. Francis.
From the department …
The Oak Creek, Cudahy, and South Milwaukee/St. Francis Health Departments will be offering weekly booster dose clinics across the south shore.
The Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine that has been approved by the FDA and CDC for booster doses. You must be at least 18 years old, at least 6 months must have passed since you received your second dose of Pfizer, and you must be a member of one of the eligible groups listed below in order to receive a booster vaccine at this time. If you received the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you are not eligible for a booster dose at this time.
We currently have 2 booster dose clinics scheduled.

Also, the Health Department will no longer be offering walk-in vaccinations. Instead, it will be offering vaccines by appointment only on Tuesdays or Fridays. Please call 414-768-8055 ext. 3 to schedule.
