LA CROSSE/EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – President Biden was aiming to have 70-percent of adults receive at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot by the Fourth of July.
That goal is expected to come up short.
Instead, white house COVID-19 response officials are focusing on new milestones. They’re highlighting 70-percent of Americans 30 years and older have received at least one shot.
Wisconsin’s DHS Deputy Secretary says the vaccine rollout in Wisconsin remains strong.
“There are still people who are learning. There are still people considering this vaccine. There are thousands pf people still getting their first vaccine every day in wisconsin. It’s just that it’s closer to 4 or 5 or 6,000, instead of the 40, 50, 60,000 first-day doses as we were seeing a few months ago,” said Julie Willems Van Dijk.
42- hundred more people are fully vaccinated in the badger state. This puts the state’s percentage of people vaccinated at 45.4.
In Eau Claire County, 48.1 percent of community members are vaccinated.
43 percent is the inoculation total in Chippewa County.
La Crosse County sits at 52 percent.
Dunn County has 36.7 percent of its population fully vaccinated.
