1-20-21 wisconsinites over age 65 eligible for covid-19 vaccine

Everyone over age 65 in Wisconsin will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting on Monday. The state Department of Health Services said Tuesday that prioritizing that population will help save lives.   Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says the challenge statewide will be vaccinating about 700,000 people over age 65, when the state receives only about 70,000 doses of first-dose vaccine each week.  Those over 65 join frontline health care workers, those in long-term care facilities, police and fire personnel in being eligible for the vaccine in Wisconsin.
