Update: COVID Vaccinations

COVID Vaccinations have just been approved. While the supply of the vaccine is ramping up to meet the needs of the entire population, the CDC and FDA are managing the distribution process.

Supply is allocated at the federal level and shipped to state departments of health for distribution.

Per State of Wisconsin Vaccination Site:

Who will be able to get vaccinated?
When there is enough of the vaccine available for everyone, DHS will make sure all Wisconsinites have access to the vaccine.

Due to the initial limited supply of vaccine, the federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee (SDMAC) developed Wisconsin-specific recommendations on vaccine prioritization. Based on these phase 1a recommendations from federal and state health experts, the first populations to receive the vaccine will be frontline healthcare workers
and residents of long-term care facilities. 

As supply increases, recommendations will likely expand to cover other essential workers, people ages 65 and older, and people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 to receive a vaccine. Later, as more supply becomes available, groups of people at higher risk for contracting COVID-19 and the general public will be recommended to get vaccines.

For more information on the planning and distribution process, view the COVID-19 vaccination plan DHS submitted to the CDC. You can also view DHS’s executive summary of the vaccination plan on the DHS website.
