Fewer and fewer people are getting the coronavirus shot in Wisconsin.
The state’s Department of Health Services says last week’s doses barely topped 150 thousand. That’s down about 17 thousand doses from the week before. Wisconsin’s coronavirus vaccination peak was in early April with 435 thousand doses handed-out in one week. Almost 41 percent of people in the state are fully vaccinated.

What does that mean for the goal of herd immunity?
A lot more people are going to have to get the coronavirus vaccine if Wisconsin is going to hit herd immunity by the Fourth of July. Department of Health Services Deputy Secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk last week said it’s unlikely that the state will hit herd immunity this summer. She says it’s more likely to be October. Willems Van Dijk says herd immunity will happen once 70 percent of people are vaccinated.
