COVID-19 Vaccine Available To The General Public Beginning Monday

Big news, in Wisconsin’s coronavirus vaccination effort. Beginning Monday, everyone age 16 and up will be eligible for a shot

“This decision to move ahead with everybody really simplifies the whole scenario, for our vaccinators, for our public. No more having to sort out if you’re in or if you’re out. It’s time to just move forward and get everybody with a shot in their arm.”

Deputy Health Services Secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk says the federal government’s estimates of vaccine allotments have gotten more accurate, and the state has done a good job of vaccinating its initial eligibility groups.

Also Monday, DHS reported that 1 million Wisconsinites have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
