100,000+ Doses of Vaccine Distributed on UW-Green Bay Campuses

University continues to help region move forward from pandemic

Green Bay, Wis.—The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s four campuses are making a significant difference in the battle against COVID-19. With Prevea Health community vaccination clinics at all four campuses (Green Bay, Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan), Prevea has administered nearly 105,000 doses of vaccine to date at these sites alone.

“We are grateful for the collective effort of our students, faculty, staff, and our partners at Prevea Health to fight the pandemic,” says UW-Green Bay Chancellor Michael Alexander. “Reaching the milestones of 100,000 vaccination shots and 30,000 rapid tests is helping our region to move past the pandemic. Not only have we shown how resilient we are in continuing to educate and keep students safe during this time, we’ve also served, as we should, as an important community partner in being a part of the solution. We will continue to try to solve problems for the region we serve.”

“COVID-19 vaccination is key as we move forward in this pandemic to determine what will happen next. We are extremely thankful to our UW-Green Bay partners and the way that they have wanted to help steer this pandemic in the right direction,” says President and CEO, Dr. Ashok Rai. “Their partnership has allowed us the space we’ve needed to vaccinate the masses in four of our communities. I can’t say enough how important this has been as we make every effort to vaccinate Northeast Wisconsin.”

COVID-19 vaccines are available at all four UW-Green Bay campuses with many available appointments. To schedule an appointment, visit: prevea.com/vaccine.

UW-Green Bay Nursing Students Step to Front Lines

To date, UW-Green Bay nursing students have provided more than 700 hours vaccinating and educating at COVID vaccination sites in February and March alone. Additionally, nursing faculty have contributed 77 hours toward vaccination efforts during this period. Nursing students are eager to be involved in this important public health initiative. Nursing students and supervising nursing faculty have assisted at 13 vaccination sites including at the Marinette School District, Watertown City Health Department, Sheboygan County Health and Human Services, Kewaunee County Health Department, Green Bay Correctional Institution, Lawrence University, and National Guard/Menasha City Health Department. Additional sites include Lakeshore Community Health Center, Veterans Administration Clinic and Aurora BayCare.

This effort has been supported by a Wisconsin Partnership Program Grant and UW System tuition credit program for nursing students involved in assisting with COVID response activities.

Rapid Testing will Continue through May

In response to the region’s ongoing need for Covid-19 testing, UW-Green Bay will be extending the community surge drive-thru testing at the Weidner Center through May 2021. To date, 30,765 rapid antigen and confirmatory PCR tests have been given at the site. To schedule an appointment please visit doineedacovid19test.com.

Letter from Prevea President and CEO Dr. Rai to UW-Green Bay students

Dear Students,

On behalf of Prevea Health, I would like to thank you for allowing Prevea to make a temporary home on your campuses by allowing us to create community COVID-19 mass vaccination clinics. Having taken over your gymnasium spaces on four of your campuses, we appreciate that you sacrificed some of your rec time to allow us the time and space to be able to tackle the next step in this public health crisis. We deeply value our partnership with UW-Green Bay.

With the Wisconsin Department of Health Services announcing that all individuals age 16 and older are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, I would like to strongly encourage you to get yours. Having mass vaccination clinics on your four UW-Green Bay campuses (Green Bay, Sheboygan, Manitowoc and Marinette), it should hopefully afford you easy access to getting the vaccine.

The process is extremely easy:

It’s very important to note that for any students under the age of 18, you must receive the Pfizer vaccine and have parent/guardian consent. Those individuals need to call 1-833-344-4373 to schedule.

For those 18 and older, you may receive any of the three vaccines. You can check to see what vaccine is being offered on different days at www.prevea.com/vaccine .  When scheduling your vaccine on MyPrevea, you MUST be available 21 or 28 days later for the second dose of your vaccine. There are no exceptions to this.

  • If you receive the Pfizer vaccine, your second dose will be 21 days later.
  • If you receive the Moderna vaccine, your second dose will be 28 days later.
  • If you receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you will only receive one dose.

The semester will be over before you know it – don’t delay in scheduling your vaccine! This way, you can be fully vaccinated by the end of the semester and feel that much more safer going home, knowing that you are protected against the virus.

Wishing you all a fantastic end to the school year.

Dr. Ashok Rai
Prevea Health President and CEO

Marinette, Wis.—Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers and Wisconsin Department of Health Services Interim Secretary Karen Timberlake were among state and local dignitaries to visit the Prevea Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus Fieldhouse on Monday, Feb. 22, 2021.

The Prevea Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus Fieldhouse officially opened today in partnership with the Marinette County Public Health Department to vaccinate those eligible for vaccination under the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) vaccination prioritization guidelines.

“We are proud to partner with Marinette County Public Health and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Marinette Campus to enhance access to COVID-19 vaccinations for our rural communities, here at this new site in Marinette,” said Dr. Ashok Rai, President and CEO, Prevea Health. “With enough vaccine supplied to us by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, we have the ability to provide as many as 1,450 doses of COVID-19 vaccine each week.”

Prevea Health also operates community COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Oconto Falls at HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital; in Green Bay at UW-Green Bay; in Sheboygan at UW-Green Bay, Sheboygan Campus; and in Chippewa Falls at Jacob’s Well Church.

Conversations continue to be ongoing to explore all additional opportunities.”

To date, and across all its COVID-19 vaccination locations in Wisconsin, Prevea Health has provided more than 25,000 people with their first doses of COVID-19 vaccinations.

Currently, vaccine supply and allocation across Wisconsin remains limited – even for those groups currently eligible for vaccination. Prevea Health and other local vaccinators can only make COVID-19 vaccination appointments available based upon the amount of vaccine provided by DHS. In anticipation of additional groups to be announced as eligible for vaccination soon, we kindly ask everyone to be patient during this time. Additional appointments will be added to our schedules as we receive additional vaccine from DHS. Please also reach out to your loved ones and neighbors who may need assistance navigating their eligibility status and appointment scheduling online.
