More than 232,000 Wisconsinites have received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine as of Friday, the state Department of Health Services reported Saturday.
So far this week, 160,135 doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have been administered in Wisconsin, with almost 30,000 shots given on Friday, according to the state health department.
More than 940,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccines have been administered since December.
Thirty-seven percent of Wisconsinites 65 and older have received at least one shot, according to DHS. About 38,700 residents 65 and older are fully vaccinated.
More than 11% of the state’s white population has received at least one dose of the vaccine, compared to 3% of the Black and Hispanic populations, 5% of the Asian population and 8% of the American Indian population, according to data from the state.
However, the Black, Hispanic and American Indian populations have experienced higher rates of COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations and deaths than white Wisconsinites, according to DHS.
On Thursday, state health officials said they were working to distribute the vaccine more equitably.
More women than men in Wisconsin have received a vaccine so far. According to the state health department, more than 428,000 women have received at least one dose of the vaccine, compared to around 257,000 men.
