Today (Monday) is the first day Wisconsin residents who are 65 and older are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, but they may not get the shot anytime soon. A Department of Health Services spokesperson points out there are about 700-thousand Wisconsinites over the age of 65 – but the state only receives 70-thousand first doses of the vaccine each week. Those numbers mean it will take some time to vaccinate everyone in the age group who wants the vaccine. State officials have asked the federal government to increase the volume being shipped to Wisconsin.
