Healthcare workers and people in nursing homes will be the first to get the coronavirus vaccine in Wisconsin, but after that, it will require more discussion.
The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday said they are still talking about that. The State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee met yesterday to talk about ‘prioritizing’ vaccine distribution. The first doses of the vaccine should be available this month, but committee members say it will likely be next fall before everyone in Wisconsin will have the access to a shot.
From our Capitol, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers is trying to calm fears about the coronavirus vaccine.
The governor yesterday told reporters that he ‘absolutely’ will take the vaccine. The governor said he and his wife will wait their turn, but said he doesn’t have any reservations about getting the vaccine when it is available.
