On Monday, a broad new group of people in Wisconsin will become eligible for COVID-19 vaccines.
People age 16 or older with certain medical conditions will be eligible.
The conditions include chronic diseases, diabetes, and obesity.
The vaccine rollout has been successful in Wisconsin compared to other states, allowing the state to move up eligibility dates for the new group.
On Thursday, Department of Health Services Deputy Secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk sounded optimistic about where the state stands with regard to vaccinations.
