The data, compiled by Bloomberg as part of its vaccine distribution tracking efforts, said that more than 76.9 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the United States.

A breakdown of the data found that in Wisconsin, 16.7 percent of the state's population have received at least one shot, while 8.9% are fully vaccinated.

Since the start of the distribution, Wisconsin residents 65+ were being prioritized for the COVID-19 vaccine. Teachers, child care workers, and several other groups were eligible for the vaccine starting March 1. Wisconsin is expected to receive 47,000 doses of the one-shot Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine next week, the Department of Health Services said.
