The Waukesha County Expo Center Community Vaccination Clinic administered its last vaccines yesterday. The County planned to begin transitioning COVID-19 vaccination operations from Public Health to local healthcare systems’ clinics and pharmacies once 60% of the County’s eligible population is vaccinated. That goal was met at the end of April, with several additional clinics being held to be able to complete the two-dose series required for Moderna vaccines.
Since the clinic opened its doors on February 8, the Expo Center Community Vaccination Clinic has administered 38,088 doses of vaccine to 20,940 people. It took the dedication and hard work of more than 450 staff and volunteers to operate this clinic.
Waukesha County currently has one of the most vaccinated populations in southeast Wisconsin, with 50.8% of all residents with at least one dose of the vaccine, and 44.3% of residents who have completed the series. All residents are encouraged to be vaccinated to continue to stop the spread of COVID-19.
