That information comes from the Wisconsin Immunization Registry. DHS plans to add this information to its COVID-19 dashboard and update it at least weekly, she said.
On Monday, around 10,000 Pfizer vaccine doses arrived at two hubs in the state, including UW Health. Yesterday, four additional hubs received around 22,000 doses. Today, the last two hubs are expecting to receive about 18,000 doses.
Further allocations are expected in the coming weeks. DHS does not know when or how much they are set to receive, Palm said.
The eight hubs are fitted with the ultra-cold storage the Pfizer vaccine requires.
“With the small amount of vaccine arriving in Wisconsin this week, we are starting with a small number of providers to help ensure safe and efficient distribution,” Palm said. “As more providers complete the vaccinator training and enrollment process, we will continue to expand distribution.”
She added that it will take a few months to get through all of what’s known as tier 1A, made up of more than 450,000 people — the health care workers and skilled nursing facilities. The state is waiting to hear recommendations from the national level on the “essential” workers who should be included in group 1B.
