Nearly half of the people in custody in Wisconsin's prisons and youth facilities are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

 

The rate exceeds the vaccination rate for Wisconsin as a whole, after initially lagging behind.

 

The Wisconsin Department of Corrections shows nearly 9,000 people, or 47.2%, of the eligible prison population, have been fully vaccinated.

 

That's compared with just under 42% of eligible state residents overall.
