SPARTA, Wis. ― Mayo Clinic Health System in Sparta is expanding the number of days COVID-19 vaccines will be offered to patients beginning this week. Part of this transition also will mean one less day of COVID-19 testing. This decision by Mayo Clinic Health System is due to the continued decreasing demand for testing in the region while the need for vaccinations has increased.
New COVID vaccination appointments will be made available inside the main entrance of Sparta facility located on the main floor from noon–4 p.m. every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Eligible patients 18 and older in Southwest Wisconsin can directly schedule their vaccine appointment using Patient Online Services. Patients without access to Patient Online Services can call 608-392-7400 to schedule their vaccine appointment. When coming to any of the vaccination clinics, please arrive at your scheduled appointment time and avoid arriving early.
Mayo Clinic Health System will continue to offer COVID-19 vaccines as they are available. The speed of vaccinating community members for COVID-19 depends on the supply of COVID-19 vaccines provided by the state and federal government. The number of vaccination appointments available will be based on the current supply of doses.
COVID-19 testing at the Sparta campus will continue to be made available under the former Emergency Department canopy behind the hospital building along K Street the same location from noon–4 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday.
Patients seeking a COVID-19 test in Sparta must call the Mayo Clinic COVID-19 Nurse Line at 507-293-9525 to be screened before coming to the clinic. Those who are not Mayo Clinic Health System patients may call that triage number and request screening for COVID-19. Staff will help register patients into Mayo's system. Patients will be advised of next steps if testing positive for COVID-19.
