Gov. Tony Evers has signed a bill that allows dentists to administer COVID-19 vaccinations.

Evers announced he had signed the bill on Monday morning, the same day that nearly 2 million more people became eligible for shots.

Evers' administration announced earlier this month that people age 16 and up with certain pre-existing conditions would be eligible on Monday.

The general public will become eligible May 1.

As of Sunday about 25% of Wisconsin's population had received at least one dose. Nearly 15% had received two doses, completing their vaccination cycle.
