The Wisconsin Department of Health Services and Governor Tony Evers (D) held a COVID-19 media briefing on January 21. DHS said shots for 700,000 Wisconsinites 65 and older can start Monday. "The amount of vaccine we get from the federal government will help determine how quickly we can get through this group," Gov. Evers said. This group represents about 45% of Wisconsin's adult population which equates to about 2 million people. "We don't yet have enough vaccine for all those folks," DHS Deputy Secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk said. The federal government currently allots Wisconsin 70,000 doses per week. Willems Van Dijk added that based on conversations with the federal government, Wisconsin's supply will remain at this level for at least the next few weeks.
