COVID-19 Vaccine and Treatment Information
Updated as of May 1, 2023
We understand how serious COVID-19 is and are eager to get our patients vaccinated and treated as soon as possible. Our current workflow could change rapidly based on state and federal decisions and available supply. Even scheduled appointments may need to be adjusted without much notice. We ask for your continued patience and appreciate your understanding as we all navigate this situation together.
COVID-19 Antiviral Treatment:
Oral and intravenous (IV) antiviral therapies are available to patients at risk for severe disease. These medications are not available over the counter and must be prescribed. If you are unsure of your eligibility or considered at risk for severe disease, please talk to your physician to see which COVID-19 treatment or medication may be right for you.

Associated Physicians can only provide COVID-19 vaccinations to those who have completed their new patient appointment and have had an appointment within the past three years, and who meet certain eligibility criteria depending on the dose they are seeking. Please note, as Associated Physicians only carries the Pfizer vaccine (*exception: see ages 6 months to 5 years below), our criteria are based on Pfizer-specific approved recommendations as well as public health guidelines. The below information is for most people. If you are moderately or severely immunocompromised, you may need a slightly different spacing of vaccines and should speak to your care team for guidance.

INITIAL VACCINE DOSES
Patients who have still not received their initial vaccine doses may call the clinic to inquire about scheduling. Due to staffing and vaccine distribution and availability, our ability to schedule may be limited; however, we are encouraging our patients to take the first opportunity that presents itself to be vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. Please continue checking our COVID-19 webpage for updates, as this may be subject to change, and utilize the Vaccine Finder tool for options near you.
Time Between Doses
6 months to 4 years
Dose 1 to 2: at least 3 weeks | Dose 2 to 3: at least 8 weeks
6 months to 5 years
Dose 1 to 2: at least 4 weeks
Dose 1 to 2: at least 3 weeks
For ages 6 months-4/5 years, we have a supply of both the Pfizer vaccine and the Moderna vaccine. As we are expecting high call volumes, we are asking that you select which vaccine you would like your child to receive prior to scheduling. Please note, the CDC does not recommend that children under 5 years of age mix and match vaccine products. If there is a situation where you may need to mix and match vaccine products, please discuss this with your child's provider.

As expected, this vaccine is in high demand, and we are working through scheduling as quickly as possible. While it is our goal to accommodate all patients in a timely manner, we are strongly encouraging you to take the first opportunity available to have your child vaccinated. To check your area for other locations currently scheduling this age range, utilize the Vaccine Finder tool.
We are scheduling COVID-19 boosters by appointment only. Patients meeting the criteria below can schedule their appropriate booster dose by calling the clinic.
65+: If you have had a COVID-19 bivalent booster, call the clinic to schedule another.
Immunocompromized (any age): If you had a COVID-19 bivalent booster more than 2 months ago, call the clinic to schedule.
No previous bivalent boosters: Call the clinic to schedule.
No previous COVID-19 vaccines/Only monovalent doses: You can get a single COVID-19 bivalent vaccine. Call the clinic to schedule.
No previous bivalent doses (6-18 years old): They can now receive a dose. Call the clinic to schedule.
No previous COVID-19 vaccines (6-18 years old): Only 1 dose of the COVID-19 bivalent vaccine is needed. Call the clinic to schedule.
6 months to 6 years of age: The original monovalent COVID-19 vaccine has been replaced by the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine. The number of doses varies by the child’s age and the vaccine you choose. Call or send a MyUnityPoint message to determine what your child may need.
If you or your child do not meet these criteria and have already received your bivalent boosters, you do not need an additional dose at this time.
If you or your child have already received a COVID-19 vaccine dose or are scheduled to do so soon, there is no need to call or send us a MyUnityPoint message to let us know. COVID-19 vaccinations given in the state of Wisconsin will be added to the Wisconsin Immunization Registry no matter where they are given.
We appreciate your continued patience. We understand this has been a long and confusing process for everyone. We will continue to advocate for our patients to get vaccinated in a safe and timely way through any available resource.
All updates will be given through our Facebook and Instagram, and posted on this page. Additionally, if you are a site member or subscriber, you will receive an email update. Please see below for the most up-to-date information on local and national vaccine status.
