The Richland Hospital
On Jan. 25, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) had expanded the 1B group to include individuals 65 years of age or older. The Richland Hospital has a self-scheduling system that you can access by going to our website: richlandhospital.com and either scheduling yourself for an available appointment or adding your name to the waiting list.
The Richland Hospital will open additional vaccination appointments as the state increases allocation of the COVID-19 vaccine and would encourage adding you name to the waiting list if no appointments are available.
Instructions on how to register can be found at www.richlandhospital.com/covid19 under COVID-19 Vaccine Update.
You must see a confirmation code at the end of the registration process when scheduling your appointment. The confirmation code confirms that you have completed all the steps to register. You only need to schedule your ﬁrst dose, the hospital will schedule your second dose when you are here. If you do not have access to the internet or a computer, we are asking that you contact a friend or relative to help you schedule this appointment.
If you still need help, please call the COVID vaccine hotline number at 608-647-1820 and we will be happy to help you get scheduled. You will always receive a recording, so please leave one message. Someone from the hospital will return your call by the end of the next business day. You should call this line if you need to cancel an appointment or have questions about the scheduling process.
The vaccine will be provided at no out-of-pocket cost to you. However, please bring your insurance card to your appointment. The hospital will bill your insurance or government program for vaccine administration expenses.
It is anticipated to take two or three months to complete vaccination of the 1B population. Please check the hospital’s website or listen to WRCO for frequent updates. We ask that you refrain from calling your provider’s ofﬁce to request the vaccine so that we can continue providing care for your fellow community members.
As of February 1st, The Richland Hospital has vaccinated 962 individuals. This truly has been a team effort and we would like to thank our vaccine team, TRH staff, and community members for stepping up to receive the vaccine.
