COVID-19 Vaccine

Released: 02/26/21

02/10/2021 –

WMC is beginning to receive limited vaccine for patients.

Patients who receive family medicine care at Winneshiek Medical Center with a Mayo Clinic Health System physician or advanced practice provider (nurse practitioner or physician assistant) will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at WMC. Patients will be called by WMC staff when the vaccine is available for them, with instructions on the process and location of the vaccine.

If we do not reach you by phone, we will leave a message with callback instructions. If we do not hear from you, you will not lose your opportunity to receive the vaccine. We will continue to call until we reach you.

WMC will determine the order/timeline of vaccine distribution by following a standard COVID-19 risk score, based on information in the patient’s health record.

What YOU can do:

  • If you have an existing MyChart account, please verify your contact information is current in our system through MyChart: (Note: A MyChart account is not necessary to be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine at WMC.)
  • Accept calls from Winneshiek Medical Center, as we may be calling to let you know the vaccine is available for you. (Note: Scam calls using WMC’s phone number do occur in our community. When calling to schedule the COVID-19 vaccine appointment, we will not ask for any financial information or your social security number. Do not give this information out over the phone, and if you are concerned, hang up and call us back at our main phone number 563-382-2911.)
  • Please do not call WMC to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. We will call you when the vaccine is available for you.
