NOW: Fewer COVID-19 vaccine doses being shipped to Wisconsin this week

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Fewer doses of the coronavirus vaccine will be shipped to Wisconsin this week.

Health officials say that's a good thing so there are no wasted doses. However, with the anticipation of the FDA to authorize the use of the Pfizer vaccine for people aged 12-year-olds and older, officials say the demand is likely to change.

"That will be very positive news because another group will become eligible for the vaccine," Mo Kharbat, vice president of pharmacy at SSM Health said.

Officials say more providers are also transitioning to community vaccination sites like schools in hopes to reach more people.
