Phase 1B Vaccinations Require Patience

Phase 1B Vaccinations Require Patience

Teachers, grocery store workers, inmates, mink farmers, and bus drivers are all among those in Wisconsin’s next group to be eligible for the coronavirus vaccine, but they are going to have to wait to get their shot.

The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday settled on an expansive group for Phase 1b, over a million-and-a-half people are part of the group, that’s nearly one-in-three people in the state. But DHS said no one in Phase 1b should expect to get a shot until March 1st at the earliest.

DHS deputy secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk says Wisconsin doesn’t have enough doses to quickly vaccinate all of the people it is including in the next round of eligibility.
