The latest vaccination numbers from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) show a large dip in the amount of state residents who received and completed their vaccination series during Easter weekend.
According to the DHS, a total of 1,922,832 people (33.0% of the state’s population) have received a vaccine – only 28 more people since Sunday’s report. Although the state typically has a weekend slump in vaccination numbers which then jump on Tuesdays, our records show the smallest daily change for the amount of residents who received a vaccination is 2,156.
As Action 2 News previously reported, the state is on track to meet the milestone of 2,000,000 Wisconsin residents having received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose later this week. With the state currently averaging 27,874 doses being administered a day to Wisconsin residents, the milestone could be met Wednesday or Thursday.
Meanwhile, another 1,267 people completed their vaccine series in Wisconsin, bringing the state’s total to 1,171,309 people, or 20.1% of the state’s population. The state is currently averaging 26,283 people completing the COVID-19 vaccine series per day.
