MILWAUKEE, WI – The Milwaukee Health Department has announced changes to COVID-19 community vaccination and testing sites following the expiration of the federal emergency declaration on May 11 and the end of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Community Testing Support Program. The Menomonee Valley COVID-19 Drive-Thru Clinic will provide its last day of COVID-19 vaccination on Friday, March 17, but vaccination will still be available for free without an appointment at Milwaukee Health Department clinics.

The vaccination clinic hours will change on Monday, April 3, and the new hours will be available on the Milwaukee Health Department website. The COVID-19 community testing site at Menomonee Valley will be in operation until Saturday, April 15, but at-home rapid tests will continue to be available through the Say Yes COVID Tests program until the end of May. Families can order ten tests per month, per household, and each home can also order one set of four free at-home tests at COVIDtests.gov. Additionally, tests can be purchased in stores, pharmacies, and online. Insurance companies, Medicaid (BadgerCare), and Medicare are required to reimburse up to eight tests per month, per member.


The Milwaukee Health Department thanks the National Guard and community partners for their support and collaboration in bringing COVID-19 services to Milwaukee on a wide scale. For more information about COVID-19, including treatment services and additional guidance, visit Milwaukee.gov/coronavirus, and call the COVID-19 Hotline at 414-286-6800 from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. on weekdays for questions.
