LIVE: Wisconsin DHS updates vaccine maps

MADISON, Wis. (WKBT) — The Wisconsin Department of Health Services released updated maps and data tables that break down COVID-19 vaccinations.

The new maps allow Wisconsinites to view existing COVID-19 vaccination data by municipalities (cities, towns, and villages), zip code tabulation areas, school district boundaries, and census tracts.

“Breaking down existing vaccination data by these additional geographies offers new ways for people to understand COVID-19 activity within their communities and will allow us to determine where we need to focus our ongoing vaccination outreach efforts,” said DHS Secretary-designee Karen Timberlake. “Providing timely, transparent COVID-19 information to local and tribal health officials and the public has been a top priority throughout the pandemic, and these updates continue that commitment.”

DHS officials Julie Willems Van Dijk and Dr. Ryan Westergaard took media questions at 1:30 p.m.
