Madison, Wisconsin (AP) —Governor Tony Evers announced on Monday that his administration would partner with an international medical institution to set up a community site for COVID-19 vaccination.
The Evers office announced in a news release that the government would work with AMI Expeditionary Healthcare to set up 6-10 community vaccination sites. The first is scheduled to open in Rock County on February 16th, with a maximum of 250 vaccinations per day and a goal of increasing to a maximum of 1,000 per day.
The announcement did not say exactly where the Rock County site would be located or would be housed in an existing facility. It also does not state where other sites will be located and does not disclose the terms of the state agreement with AMI.
It’s also unclear whether the site will follow a step-by-step approach to state vaccination or make shots available to anyone.
Evers spokeswoman Brit Kudabak and State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Goodsit did not immediately respond to messages asking for more information. AMI Expeditionary Healthcare personnel also did not immediately respond to the message.
AMI Expeditionary Healthcare is based in Ruston, Virginia. According to its website, the organization provides medical services such as one aid post, mobile clinics and field hospitals to international aid groups, the private sector and remote government agencies.
