Tomah Health continues to work with Wisconsin and Monroe County Public Health Dept., and Region 4 Healthcare Emergency Readiness Coalition (HERC) in response to COVID-19.
Mildly ill patients are encouraged to stay home and contact their healthcare provider by phone for guidance about clinical management. Patients who have severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, should seek care immediately.
As a state registered vaccinator, Tomah Health is working with the Monroe County Health Dept., to provide the vaccine to people according to the Wisconsin Dept of Health vaccine distribution plan. COVID-19 vaccine is being distributed to Wisconsin residents in a phased approach. Vaccine supply is limited and vaccinations are targeted to specific groups of people with a higher risk for COVID-19 infection. Who is on the list? CLICK HERE

The United States currently has the safest vaccine supply in its history. The nation’s long-standing vaccine safety system ensures that vaccines are as safe as possible.
Vaccine Safety is a vital part of the nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As vaccines are developed and become available, the public’s knowledge of their safety, both initially and during extended use, is an important part of a successful national vaccination effort.

Here are a few common questions we are receiving...
I heard my friend got their vaccine already at Tomah Health, my name is on the list at Monroe Co but I want to get it at Tomah Health if I can get it sooner.
At this time Monroe County is handling all of the scheduling of COVID vaccines. Tomah Health is a location that you may be sent to for your vaccine but the county is scheduling dates and times.
I left a message for the County to get scheduled but no one is calling me back, can I just schedule with you?
The county is very busy with vaccine planning and scheduling, they will call you back and get your name added to the list. All vaccine scheduling is taking place through the County, we are unable to schedule you here.
How did my friend get their vaccine from you so fast?
We have been working with Monroe County to schedule these individuals, we understand that it is difficult to wait but the county is trying to schedule everyone to be vaccinated as fast as they can. You will be able to get vaccinated but it may take some time for vaccine to be available.
I filled out a form on the Monroe County Health Dept. website and did not hear back, can you check to make sure I am on the list?
You will be contacted once vaccine is available. Monroe County Health is handling all of the scheduling and we are unable to access any of that information. Thank you though for being patient as we try to navigate getting everyone vaccines with the County.
Due to limitations on testing supplies, Tomah Health does not currently provide COVID testing to patients that are not exhibiting symptoms. Testing is provided to symptomatic patients that are cared for in our Urgent Care and Emergency Departments.
Patients who are not exhibiting COVID symptoms but still wish to be tested should reach out to their primary physician or attend a community testing event.
