Just about four million people in Wisconsin have gotten at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
State health officials say that’s something to be proud of. Now, Department of Health Services Deputy Secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk says, the challenge is to get the next two million people to get the shot. Willems Van Dijk yesterday said vaccine numbers in the state have plateaued. Doctors and nurses gave out 225 thousand doses last week, that’s down by 200 thousand doses from the beginning of April. Willems Van Dijk says they continue to ask people to get the shot. She said DHS is also trying to get people more information so they feel more comfortable in getting the vaccine.

If it’s a matter of convenience, Wisconsin’s public health managers are willing to bring the coronavirus vaccine to you.
The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday launched what it’s calling on-site vaccination clinics. The idea is to bring vaccine doses to office buildings or other workplaces, and get people the shot there. DHS is doing all it can to get people the vaccine. DHS says 43 percent of people in the state have gotten one dose of the vaccine.
