MADISON, Wis.– The messaging is clear: If you’re due for your booster, don’t wait. But many people are finding they have no other choice, with Dane County pharmacies like Hy-Vee, Walgreens, and CVS booking appointments an average of two weeks in advance.

“We don’t anticipate that changing, either,” said Sarah Hughes, public health supervisor with Public Health Madison & Dane County. “We know that people are going to continue to be looking for boosters especially now that everyone 18 & older is eligible.”
