Number of weekly vaccine doses for Wisconsin residents continues to tank since early April peak


It's the same all over.

USA Today, 6/7/2021
Twelve states, including Utah, Oklahoma, Montana, the Dakotas and West Virginia, have seen vaccinations sink to 15 daily shots per 10,000 residents; Alabama had just four people per 10,000 residents get vaccinated last week, according to data from The Washington Post. 
The “low-hanging fruit – those people who absolutely want to get vaccinated without you telling them anything” have already been vaccinated, which has led to the slowdown, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious-diseases expert, said on a White House-organized call with community leaders last week, according to the Post.

The seven-day average of daily doses sits at just under 24,000, dropping more than 2,000 doses in a single day, according to state Department of Health Services data. 
“I would imagine we’ll see a little bit of an uptick as more individuals are eligible both by age and others have moved into the 'yes, I’m willing to get vaccinated' stage," said Darren Rausch, director of the Greenfield Health Department. Eligibility will certainly increase as children ages 12 to 15 can now receive the Pfizer vaccine. 
Department of Health Services data shows the seven-day average of COVID-19 cases declined to 466 on Thursday, down 328 from a month ago.
