WI Vaccine Notes: Shots Available for Kids, State Doses Drop, WI Senator Speaks Out

Kids as young as 12 in Eau Claire, Chippewa, and Dunn counties can now get a coronavirus shot.

Local health departments started offering the vaccine to junior high and high school students yesterday. The CDC cleared their use earlier this week. Dunn County is offering the shots at its vaccine clinic at UW-Stout. Chippewa County is offering the shots at local schools. CLICK HERE FOR MORE LOCAL INFO.

On the state level, Wisconsin could be in-line for another large drop in coronavirus vaccinations.

The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday reported that just over 69-thousand vaccine doses have been handed-out so far this week. Those numbers will increase as the statewide count comes-in over the next few days, but it’s clear that a lot fewer people are getting the vaccine. Wisconsin’s vaccinations peaked in early April and have fallen steadily since.

We’ll show you different sides so you can decide.


In a mix of politics and public health, Wisconsin’s Republican U.S. Senator says there is nothing wrong with people not getting the coronavirus shot.

JOHNSON

Johnson wrote in an op-ed for the Washington Examiner that people should make informed decisions about their health. Johnson says he’s not getting the vaccine because he already had the virus. Johnson says he spoke with his doctor before making the decision. He said other people should speak with their doctors about their health as well.
