(WAOW) — Wisconsin state health officials were hoping that this week they would see an increase in the allocation of COVID-19 vaccine, but that did not happen.
State health officials have been saying the state receives about 70,000 doses of the vaccine each week. As of Tuesday's update on the vaccine data page, the latest allocation falls short of that marker.
The state is getting an allocation of 66,500, about 3,500 doses less than the anticipated minimum.
Still, this brings the state's total allocation to 846,300.
Of those doses, 162,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine are reserved as part of the federal Pharmacy Partnership Program (no increase from the week before).
Of the state's allocation, 641,150 does have been ordered, 167,850 are in transit.
Nearly one third of all administered doses occurred in the last week. The state reports that a total of 362,505 doses have been administered, an increase of 114,320 from the week before.
In North Central Wisconsin, another 9,167 vaccines were administered to residents, which brings the doses administered total to 26,576.
Of all doses administered, preliminary data indicates 69,077 are second doses. This is an increase of 28,947 from the week before.
