Wisconsin could see 40-percent of people in the state with at least one coronavirus vaccine shot by the end of next week.
The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday reported that 37-percent, or two-point-one-million people, have gotten one dose of the vaccine. Another 24-percent, of one-point-four-million people, have gotten both doses. Some cities say they are seeing less demand for the vaccine. The state says there are plenty of doses available.

Wisconsin’s coronavirus vaccination effort is not going to be slowed too much by the decision not to use the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Just under four-and-a-half-percent of Wisconsin’s three-point-five-million vaccine doses have been Johnson & Johnson doses. The CDC yesterday ordered a pause after getting reports of a small number of people who developed blood clots. Wisconsin has administered just 160-thousand Johnson & Johnson doses, compared to three-point-three- million doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine. CLICK HERE FOR MORE FROM LOCAL HEALTH OFFICIALS.
