Wisconsin subcommittee mulls over vaccine distribution plan

Local News

Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Wisconsin health leaders are considering changes to the state’s vaccine distribution plan. Possibly opening up vaccinations to people 70 and older and limited groups of essential workers.

That would be a slight departure from federal guidelines, which call for moving next to ages 75 and older and more types of essential workers.

Some members of the vaccine distribution subcommittee disagreed on whether to add group home residents and prison and jail inmates. The subcommittee may vote on a plan for the phase 1-b, the next stage of vaccination.
