Mayor: Milwaukee has sufficient supply of vaccines to meet needs of city

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Health Department says vaccine supply is “no longer a limiting factor” and appointments are available for those who want the vaccine in Milwaukee. 

“Milwaukee now has sufficient supply to meet the needs of our city,” Mayor Tom Barrett said, “So if you want to get vaccinated, and I sure do hope you want to get vaccinated, take advantage of this.”

Appointments at the Wisconsin Center can be made at Milwaukee.gov/CovidVax. That site has the capacity to administer 3,000 vaccinations each day. It is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Wisconsin. 

Walk-in clinics are also open to Milwaukee residents at North & South Division High Schools. 

Health officials say now is the time to get the vaccine. 

“With this week’s update, for the first time, we saw a substantial downtrend in the number of vaccines administered in the county. So, we’ll certainly wait for lingering data before making any conclusions there, but this is absolutely not the time to pull back on the number of individuals seeking out or being vaccinated,” said Dr. Ben Weston.
