10 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. — 10 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Wisconsin, including 2.5 million additional and booster doses.

Governor Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services announced the milestone Monday. Over 60% of residents have completed a vaccine series with 35% also getting an additional or booster dose.

“Wisconsin’s vaccine providers have worked tirelessly these past few years,” Evers said in a statement. “This is a tremendous milestone, and we couldn’t have gotten here without the hard work and dedication of everyone involved.”

According to the DHS COVID-19 database, over 83% of Dane County residents have received at least one dose, with about 79% having completed a vaccine series. However, less than 50% of residents have received an additional or booster dose.

A similar trend can be seen in Rock County, where about 60% of residents have completed a vaccine series, but only 33.7% have received an additional or booster dose.

The state’s seven-day confirmed case average is still over 1,700, and the CDC still lists 26 counties at a high level of community spread, including almost all of south-central Wisconsin. The seven-day average is still drastically lower than the peak of over 18,700 that was reached in January of this year.
