On March 1, 2021, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) added new groups to the list of those eligible for COVID-19 vaccination. DHS has asked providers to continue vaccinating those previously eligible including the 65+ population, while prioritizing those in in the next phase of eligibility. The newly eligible groups include, in priority order:
  • Those employed in education and childcare
  • People in Medicaid long-term care programs
  • Some public-facing essential workers
  • Non-frontline health care personnel
  • Facility staff and residents in congregate living settings 
It is important to understand that eligibility does not mean there is availability of the vaccine. Local vaccinators receive COVID-19 vaccine from DHS, which receives allotments from the federal government. Local vaccinators can only make COVID-19 vaccination appointments available based upon the amount of vaccine received. Currently, vaccine supply and allocation across our state remains limited – even for those groups currently eligible for vaccination.
