Wisconsin is going to need a shipment of coronavirus vaccine if the state wants to keep pace in getting people the shot.
The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday said they’ve received under five-thousand doses so far this week. Wisconsin has been averaging about 200-thousand-doses per-week since the end of January. DHS Deputy Secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk says Wisconsin has gotten only about a quarter of the vaccine doses it needs to make sure everyone who is eligible for a shot can get one.
