600+ COVID vaccinations administered during Wisconsin State Fair run
MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Gov. Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced Monday, Aug. 16 that during the 11 days of the Wisconsin State Fair, the on-site COVID-19 vaccine clinic administered 608 vaccine doses.
“This is great news for our state as we work to get shots in arms and ensure our economy can recover from this pandemic,” said Gov. Evers. “As the Delta variant spreads throughout our state, getting shots in arms is the best way to keep our each other and our communities safe. I encourage all Wisconsinites to get the vaccine as soon as possible by finding a provider near them.”
The State Fair COVID-19 vaccine clinic was operated by AMI Expeditionary Healthcare. AMI has partnered with DHS to run and operate the six DHS community-based vaccination clinics since March 2021.
The clinic offered Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
