(WMTV) On the one year mark of COVID-19 vaccines being administered to Wisconsinites, health officials unveiled the official numbers Tuesday for children ages 5-11.

The Department of Health Services announced on Nov. 3 that it would be backing Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for younger children. As of Tuesday, DHS notes 18% of children ages 5-11 have received their first COVID-19 shot and more than 1 in 10 Wisconsin children in this age group have completed their vaccine series.

These new additions to the COVID-19 dashboard bring the overall vaccination rate in Wisconsin up to 61.1% for residents with at least one dose and 57.4% of residents with a completed series.
