The Wisconsin Department of Health Services unveiled updates to the section of their COVID-19 dashboard that focuses on vaccine distribution in the state.

The page is updated Monday through Friday with the number of doses allocated, shipping and administered. It also shows how many vaccines have gone to skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities, via the Pharmacy Partnership Program.

The page now contains two graphs showing the highs and lows of vaccinations given daily since Dec. 14, 2020.

“The effort to get Wisconsinites vaccinated against COVID-19 is a major undertaking,” said DHS Secretary-designee Andrea Palm in a statement Thursday.

“And, as we have said from the beginning, it is important for people to know where we stand in that process. We are excited that many of our frontline health care workers have received their second dose and are fully protected against COVID-19 and we look forward to seeing those numbers increase in the coming weeks," according to Palm.

Since Dec. 14, about 26,684 Wisconsin residents have received their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, completing their series.

Both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines require two doses.

Only members of the Tier 1a group - medical workers, long-term care residents and staff, firefighters and law enforcement officers - are generally getting the vaccine.
