COVID testing, vaccines at Alliant Energy Center to end June 26th

MADISON, Wis. — If you want to get your coronavirus test or vaccine at the Alliant Energy Center, you’d better do it soon.

Public Health Madison & Dane County officials say they plan to end COVID testing and vaccinations at the site on June 26th. The Alliant Energy Center has served as a testing site since May of last year, with the help of the National Guard and FEMA at different times during the pandemic.

Dane County Executive Joe Parisi says that space has been a huge advantage when it comes to fighting the virus in the county.

“Our ability to utilize mass testing was part of our overall strategy that enabled us to keep our numbers per capita of COVID infections some of the lowest in the country,” Parisi said.

Once the Alliant Energy Center location shuts down, Public Health will be shifting efforts to some of its existing locations, including the south Madison testing site.

Note: A previous version of this story said testing and vaccinations will run through June 30th. PHMDC clarified that while the partnership runs through June 30th, the last day for COVID testing and vaccinations at the Alliant Energy Center will be June 26th, not the 30th.
