DHS Announces Weekly Newsletter to Provide Updates on COVID-19 Response and Vaccine Progress

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) will be publishing a weekly newsletter that will provide information about the state’s COVID-19 response and vaccine rollout. Every Friday, a COVID-19 update newsletter will be sent via email to people who sign up to receive it.

In addition to an update on vaccine eligibility and the number of vaccinations administered in Wisconsin, the newsletter will include key updates from the previous week, as well as COVID-19 resources and links to where Wisconsinites can find more detailed information.

In an  announcement encouraging Wisconsinites to subscribe to the newsletter, DHS noted, “Currently, the federal government only gives one week notice on the number of vaccines available for that week. The current allocation of 70,000 first doses is inadequate to meet the growing demand for vaccine across the state. Due to this short notice and instability of allocation, eligible populations change quickly. The newsletter will provide new information about eligible populations for vaccinations along with other communications updates about the COVID-19 response.”

The Wisconsin Hospital Association encourages members to subscribe to the DHS weekly newsletter.
