MADISON, Erase. – The Wisconsin Department of Health has resumed reporting COVID-19 vaccine data for the state after failing to do so since Nov. 5 due to Walgreens data errors.

The health department’s COVID-19 dashboard was updated Thursday to show that 58.5% of Wisconsinites have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose and 55.4% have had a full series. Those numbers are slightly higher than the November 5 data update, when 58.1% of Wisconsinites had received at least one dose and 55.1% had a full series.

In a since-deleted message on the dashboard, DHS said it found data errors “during regular data audits.” Those errors were “related to corrections Walgreens is currently making to some COVID-19 vaccination data across the country, including Wisconsin.”

DHS had said it hoped to resume vaccine data reporting on Nov. 12, a day that came and went without an update.

Dane County continues to lead the state in terms of the percentage of residents vaccinated, with 75.2% of residents having had at least one vaccine dose and 71.8% having had a full series.
