Wessman arena in Superior is now one of five community based locations in Wisconsin for residents to go and get the COVID-19 vaccine. According to WDIO Superior Mayor Jim Paine said in a Pres Conference on Tuesday:

This is not just an educational institution, this is a public institution in every meaning of the word. They have committed to helping us get through this, allowing us to use this facility to get more people vaccinated really is the Wisconsin idea.

These community based sites have become so important all over the United States making easier access to get the vaccine and helping avoid lines where some people across the nation have waited for hours only to be turned away at the last minute due to a shortage of the vaccine.

The clinic will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am-7pm.
