Police, Firefighters to get Vaccine Next in Wisconsin

Vaccine Dose

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — State health officials say police and firefighters in Wisconsin will be eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine starting Jan. 18.

Gov. Tony Evers estimates in a letter made public on Monday that members of the general public won’t be vaccinated until June.

Evers renewed his call for faster distribution of the vaccine from the federal government while state Republicans introduced a new response bill.

The Assembly passed a bill last week, and the Senate introduced a pared-down version it’s expected to pass on Tuesday.

Neither bill appears likely to be signed into law by Evers.
