COVID-19 vaccine doses below requested levels for Mayo Clinic sites in Wisconsin

Locations in northwest Wisconsin received about a tenth of their requested vaccine amounts

ROCHESTER, Minn. (WKBT) – Mayo Clinic Health System officials say the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses they are getting from Wisconsin is below what they are requesting.

The system’s northwest Wisconsin locations requested 5,000 doses, but only received 500.

The effort to make the vaccine available can only go as fast as the supply chain allows.

“A lot of this is dependent on the state and how much the state is getting. So you know, this is kind of a weekly discussion,” said Dr. Abnash Virk with Mayo Clinic.

Across the entire system, about 63,000 staff and patients have received the vaccine.
