The Winnebago County Health Department's Walk-in Wednesday COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic, regularly held on Wednesdays at Sunnyview Expo Center in Oshkosh, will be closed on August 4. The COVID-19 testing site at Sunnyview Expo Center will also be closed this week due to the Winnebago County Fair.
"COVID cases are climbing, and we're keeping a close eye on the situation," said Doug Gieryn, director/health officer for the Winnebago County Health Department. "We are fortunate to have many testing and vaccination locations in our local region, and we continue to encourage everyone eligible to get vaccinated, and get tested if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or were exposed to the virus."
