MADISON (WKOW) -- If you're looking for a flu shot, Wisconsin's new clinic finder can help. Just call 211 and you can be connected to free and confidential service in all 72 Wisconsin counties. The service does have translators available.
More communities across the state are starting to organize vaccination clinics as the H1N1 vaccine becomes available. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced there are some delays in H1N1 vaccine manufacturing, but vaccines are still being shipped to states as more becomes available.
To find out when your community is hosting an H1N1 vaccine clinic and which location is nearest you, just call 211. The help line will also have information about seasonal flu shots.
In addition to the help call-in line, 211 Wisconsin is also offering a clinic finder online. You can access it by clicking here or here. You can search by zip code to find seasonal or H1N1 flu vaccine clinics in your area.
Health care providers and other organizations in Wisconsin are calling 211 to provide detailed information on the type of flu shot that is available, along with the date, time and locations of vaccination clinics. Flu clinic information can be submitted by providers by clicking here or here.
Wisconsin's 211 service is supported by the United Way, community foundations, hospitals, local government and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
