All Wisconsin residents 16 and older eligible to get their vaccine starting Monday

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- All Wisconsin residents 16-years-old and older will be eligible to get their coronavirus vaccine beginning Monday, April 5. 

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers made the announcement earlier this week, expanding the state's vaccine rollout to all adults about four weeks earlier than planned.

Wisconsin will join at least half a dozen other states to expand vaccine eligibility to all adults.

We're also nearing another vaccine milestone in Wisconsin. Nearly one in five Wisconsin residents are fully vaccinated. 

For residents 65 and older, more than 62% are fully vaccinated. 

Nearly one in three residents have gotten at least their first dose. 

For residents 65 and older, 76% of them have gotten their first shot.
