First COVID-19 Vaccine Doses Arrive in Wisconsin

Dec 14, 2020


Health care workers in Wisconsin have started to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

The first 10,000 doses started to arrive in Wisconsin on Monday and about 35,000 more are expected by the end of next week.

The first doses are going to front-line health care workers, and to nursing home residents in a couple of weeks.

The general public will not get the vaccine for months, leading to renewed calls for patience and vigilance as the virus continues to spread.

Virus-related deaths in Wisconsin grew by 12 on Monday to 4,068 and total cases increased by 2,122 to 438,895.
