WISCONSIN — More than 10,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Wisconsin so far, the Department of Health Services reported Monday.

The news comes just a week after the first shipment of doses reached Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Health reported that 10,358 total doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered and reported to the Wisconsin Immunization Registry in the state.

That number is as of Sunday and is expected to increase, especially after Governor Tony Evers announced the first shipment of the newly approved Moderna vaccine will arrive this week.

More than 84 doses of Pfizer/BioNTech and around 100,000 doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine have been allocated to Wisconsin so far.

Local hospitals are vaccinating doctors and nurses daily, as Wisconsin officials try to solidify the rest of their distribution plan.
