AMI Community COVID Vaccine Clinic in Superior Closing Friday
AMI Expeditionary Healthcare’s vaccination clinic in Superior will be ending their services this Friday, December 16th. The AMI clinic established in 2021, with funding from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) helped support strained resources.
AMI clinic assisted the health department, local clinics, and pharmacies throughout Wisconsin. The goal was to ensure consistent and equitable community access to the COVID-19 vaccines. When COVID-19 vaccines became available to the public, Douglas County Health Department held dozens of community clinics. These clinics were able to give thousands of doses between January and April 2021.
As the pandemic continued, Douglas County increased the capacity to vaccinate residents efficiently. The Department of Health Services also implemented COVID-19 prevention strategies in their clinics. “On behalf of the Douglas County Department of Health and Human Services, we thank AMI and DHS for their contribution to COVID-19 vaccination efforts in Douglas County and surrounding areas through mobile clinics,” said Douglas County Public Health Officer Kathy Ronchi.
“Their commitment to supporting this northwest region of the state has been essential in ensuring all citizens had the opportunity to be vaccinated. This partnership also allowed the Health Department to focus on broad aspects of the pandemic and other ongoing public health responsibilities.” Ronchi said.
However, Douglas County recommend residents to get the vaccine and receive booster shots, increasing protection for themselves and others. Appointments are not necessary. This clinic serves people six months and older.
The AMI Clinic at the Government Center in Superior is free and open to the public. The final week of operation is December 13th, the clinic is open until 6 PM. However, the final day is Friday, December 16th, from 10 AM to 6 PM. The clinic is located at 1316 N 14th St, Superior in room 270.
