Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers tours Ho-Chunk COVID-19 vaccine site in Black River Falls

A little more than 4,100 COVID-19 vaccine doses have

BLACK RIVERS FALLS, Wis. (WKBT) – The vaccination effort is continuing across Wisconsin.

Governor Tony Evers visited a Ho-Chunk nation vaccination site Thursday in Black River Falls.

Governor Evers toured the site along with DHS Secretary Designee Karen Timberlake.

Evers talked how things have improved from the fear he first heard from tribal leaders early in the pandemic.

“We moved from that very, very low point and a disproportionate impact that it has had on all tribal nations in the state of Wisconsin was significant. But I heard the hurt, but I also heard the promise of a future and I just witnessed it today, so it is really meaningful,” said Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers.

A little more than 4,100 first doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been given by Ho-Chunk health leaders.
