Vaccine Demand Times Higher than Supply

Wisconsin residents eager to get vaccines may have to wait weeks or months before they become available. City of Greenfield Health Director Darren Rausch told WUWM-FM, “the demand for vaccine from vaccinator agencies trying to vaccinate people in our community is four times higher than the supply.” Northeast Wisconsin vaccine clinics say they too aren’t receiving enough supply to meet the demand. The Wisconsin Hospital Association says the state is only receiving around 70,000 vaccine doses a week. There are nearly 700,000 Wisconsinites over the age of 65 who are prioritized before Phase 1B begins. State officials say they keep pressuring the federal government for more shots.
