MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers announced on Monday that his administration is partnering with an international health care organization to set up community sites for COVID-19 vaccinations.
The administration will work with AMI Expeditionary Healthcare to set up six to 10 community vaccination sites, Evers’ office said in a news release. The first is scheduled to open Feb. 16 in Rock County and will be able to vaccinate up to 250 people per day, with a goal of ramping that up to 1,000 per day, it said.
The announcement didn’t say precisely where the Rock County site will be located or whether it will be housed at an existing facility. It also didn’t say where any of the other sites will be located or disclose the terms of the state’s agreement with AMI.
It’s also unclear whether the sites will follow the state’s phased approach to vaccinations or allow anyone to get shots.
Evers’ spokeswoman, Britt Cudaback, and state Department of Health Services spokeswoman Elizabeth Goodsitt didn’t immediately respond to messages seeking further information. AMI Expeditionary Healthcare officials also didn’t immediately respond to messages.
AMI Expeditionary Healthcare is based in Ruston, Virginia. The organization provides medical services including single-person aid posts, mobile clinics and field hospitals to international aid groups, the private sector and government agencies in remote areas, according to its website.
