Beginning next week, Police and firefighters in Wisconsin will begin receiving the coronavirus vaccine. That announcement was made Monday, followed by the announcement by Gov. Tony Evers that he estimates members of the general public won’t be vaccinated until June. The main focus for state health officials has been vaccinating more than 500,000 health care workers and nursing home residents. As of Monday, 151,502 people had been vaccinated. Starting next week, police and firefighters will start to be vaccinated, followed by people 75 and older, K-12 teachers and corrections. Evers said that the plan for who will be in the next phase of vaccinations will be released Wednesday for public comment.
