Nearly half of Wisconsin has received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine
MADISON, Wis. (WEAU, WBAY, WMTV) - Almost half of Wisconsin residents have received at least one COVID-19 shot Monday, the state’s top health agency reports.
The Department of Health Services’ COVID-19 dashboard indicates 49.1% of people have received at least one shot, while 44.2% of people have completed their vaccine series.
At the pace the state has been going through for vaccinations lately, it will likely take at least another week for Wisconsin to reach half of its residents with at least one vaccine.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) says, by Monday, 49.1% of Wisconsinites received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, which is 2,859,160 people -- almost 10,000 more people since the state’s last report on Friday.
Of those, 44.2%, or 2,576,201 Wisconsinites, are fully vaccinated -- which is 25,075 more people since Friday; they received both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one shot of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Eau Claire and La Crosse counties are pacing slightly ahead of the statewide average for COVID-19 vaccinations completed. Eau Claire, La Crosse and Trempealeau counties have seen over half of their residents receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
