MADISON, Wis. — Restaurant workers are now eligible to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in Wisconsin.

The State Department of Health Services (DHS) updated its website Friday to indicate restaurant workers would qualify for the vaccine.

DHS officials said the public-facing role of restaurant workers and an increased supply of vaccine allowed them to include this group.

These workers will be immediately eligible for the vaccine.
