Communication Update on Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine

This week, Wisconsin state health officials are expecting the first shipment of the FDA-authorized Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. The initial shipment is expected to contain 16,000 doses with more shipments coming in throughout the week. DHS is anticipating the Moderna allocation within the next two weeks to total 100,000. In addition, DHS is expecting 35,100 doses of the Pfizer vaccine this week.

Moderna can be stored in a normal freezer which allows vaccine to be shipped directly to vaccinating hospitals and clinics. Like Pfizer, this vaccine is a 2-dose series and the allocation we receive is for the first dose only, but the CDC has an equal number of doses reserved to complete the second dose.

It is important to note that expected vaccine allocation numbers are subject to change, and we will provide our health care providers and partners with the most current information as it becomes known.

In the meantime, we ask our partners to continue encouraging good pandemic behavior: staying home as much as possible, wearing a mask, physical distancing, and getting a test when needed. For resources and materials on good public health practices, visit our You Stop the Spread webpage
