Starting next week, anyone over the age of 65 will be able to get their COVID-19 vaccine. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services made the announcement today (Tuesday). In a press release, it’s said that anyone over the age of 65 will be able to get the vaccine starting Monday (Jan. 25). Currently in Phase 1A of distribution, only frontline healthcare workers, residents in long term care facilities, and police and fire personnel are receiving the vaccine. Adults over the age of 65 are part of Phase 1B, and the Wisconsin DHS says the rest of 1B eligibility will be voted on later this week. Currently, Wisconsin is receiving 70,000 first-dose vaccines per week from the federal government.
