Wisconsin vaccination rate increases amid high demand

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s COVID-19 vaccination rate increased relative to other states over the past week and demand continues to far exceed supply, with roughly one dose delivered to vaccinators for every four requested.

Last week alone, nearly 300,000 doses were requested by Wisconsin vaccinators, but the federal government delivered only about 77,000 doses, Julie Willems Van Dijk, deputy secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, said Tuesday. That’s about 27% of the amount requested.

“I know it sometimes feels like a broken record to hear us saying over and over again, ’We need more vaccine, we need more vaccine, we have people who want it, we have vaccinators ready to give it,’” Willems Van Dijk said. “But that is the bottom line: We need more vaccine.”
..........................

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ranks Wisconsin 29th as of Tuesday in terms of the percentage of the population that has received at least one dose. It had been as low as 44th last week. Wisconsin had administered 578,335 doses of vaccine to date, with 107,860 of those being second doses, Willems Van Dijk said. ................

Wisconsin State health officials: #COVID-19 vaccine providers 'deeply disappointed' after much smaller shipments than requested https://jsonline.com/story/news/2021/02/02/wisconsin-coronavirus-state-could-fulfill-27-vaccinators-orders/4360081001/ via @journalsentinel

.....Some smaller vaccine providers received zero doses this week, including the independent Good Value and Lakeview pharmacies in Racine, according to their websites.

The state has tried to avoid sending shipments to small providers who say they can vaccinate only 25 or 30 people in a week. The Moderna vaccine comes in packages of 100 doses or more, so the state wants to avoid 75 extra doses sitting on shelves until they're used, Willems Van Dijk said.

DHS is asking providers to have the capacity to vaccinate at least 100 people a week, she said.
