Pretty much everyone in Wisconsin is now eligible for the coronavirus vaccine.
The state’s Department of Health Services is expanding eligibility to everyone 16 and up, starting today. DHS says nearly 75-percent of people 65 and older have already gotten the vaccine, and now they want to make sure other people get the shot as well. You will continue to need a vaccine appointment, though those are becoming easier to get. DHS says it is confident it will have enough vaccine doses to meet the new eligibility list.
As the efforts roll on, one in three people in Wisconsin have gotten one dose of the coronavirus vaccine, and one-in-five have been fully vaccinated.
The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday said nearly two-million people in the state have gotten one dose of the vaccine. Another one-point-one-million have gotten both doses of the vaccine. The state handed-out over 341-thousand vaccine doses last week alone. CLICK HERE FOR MORE FROM WI DHS.
