Between August 20 and September 1, more than 65,000 people received their first dose. Evers launched the programme amid a spike in cases across the state caused by the more infectious delta variant. The level of new cases and hospitalisations are at a level not seen since January.
On August 22, the day before Evers announced the program, the seven-day average of vaccinations in Wisconsin was 8,360. That grew to 9,712 as of Wednesday.
More than 3 million people are fully vaccinated in Wisconsin, about 52 per cent of the total population. Among adults age 18 and over, more than 62 per cent are fully vaccinated.
