COVID-19 Vaccine Facts
(Source: CDC)

  • The vaccine will help keep you from getting COVID-19.
  • All vaccines available in the U.S. have been shown to be highly effective at preventing COVID-19.
  • The vaccine does not make you sick. Some people have had a sore arm (where the shot was given), as well as tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever and nausea; particularly after the second shot.
  • Even if you’ve had COVID-19, you should still get the vaccine. If you are currently ill with COVID-19, you should wait until you are well before getting the vaccine.
  • The vaccine is free to everyone in the United States.
  • A recent check of vaccinefinder.org lists 50 places within 50 miles of Oshkosh where vaccines are available.

If you have received at least the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccination, please fill out this Vaccination Report Form.

Culver Center Vaccinations

Vaccinations at the Culver Family Welcome Center are available to anyone in Wisconsin age 18 and up. Vaccinations are available by appointment only and only in line with the process described below. Availability is limited and no walk-ins will be accepted. 

How to make a vaccination appointment at the Culver Center or another Aurora vaccine center

1. Determine you are in an eligible category

Please ensure that you meet the vaccine eligibility criteria set by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services: COVID-19 Vaccine Phases and Eligibility (Wisconsin DHS)

FAQs: Eligibility, Allergies, Other Vaccinations
I have a history of severe allergic reactions to a component in the vaccine. Should I get vaccinated? Do not get either vaccine if you experience a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose of this vaccine. You also should not get vaccinated if you’ve had a severe allergic reaction to any component of either vaccine.

Can I get a flu shot, shingles or other vaccine during my COVID-19 vaccination series? If you are scheduling another vaccine that is not part of the COVID-19 vaccination series (i.e. shingles, flu or another vaccine), the CDC and Advocate Aurora recommend those vaccines be administered with a minimum interval of 14 days before or after the COVID-19 vaccine. This recommendation is based on the lack of data on the safety and efficacy of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines administered simultaneously with other vaccines.

18+ only: The Culver Center is currently using the Moderna vaccine, which is only approved for use on people aged 18 or older. If you are under 18 years old, you will not currently be able to sign up for a vaccination appointment at the Culver Center.

2. Schedule an appointment on the Aurora website

If you meet the eligibility criteria, click below to schedule your appointment.

On the Aurora website, we recommend using the “Schedule Online” option to schedule an appointment.

The Culver Center location is listed as “Advocate Aurora Health COVID-19 Vaccine Center UW-Oshkosh” but you may choose to receive your vaccine wherever you are able to make an appointment. Click “Book an appointment” to check availability at a vaccine location.

After you choose a location, scroll down to the “Schedule an appointment ” section to check for available appointments at that location.

Get your vaccine

At your scheduled appointment time, report to the Culver Family Welcome Center, 625 Pearl Ave., Oshkosh. Get directions to the Culver Center on Google Maps. Find the correct entrance by referring to the Culver Center Map.

After you receive your shot you will be required to stay at the center for a minimum of 15 minutes of observation.

If you have received at least the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccination, please fill out this Vaccination Report Form.

It is still possible for you to contract COVID-19 after receiving a vaccination. To ensure the safety of yourself and others, please continue to follow all recommended safety practices such as wearing a mask and maintaining physical distancing.
