Vaccine progressing in La Crosse County



Are you worried that people in other parts of Wisconsin might get the COVID vaccine before you do? 

Mayo incident commander Jason Fratzke in La Crosse doesn’t expect that to happen. 

He says the state is still in the first phase of vaccinations, and Governor Evers wants this phase completed before moving ahead to Phase 2, which could include high-risk patients and people 75 and over.    

Fratzke says it will be a challenge to reach a goal of getting 90 per cent of state residents vaccinated.

He predicts that level could be the point where American life returns to normal.

“I’d implore people that if they want to get back to some sort of normalcy in their lives, we’ve all got to do this,” said Fratzke. “It’s been very, very safe to do so. I hope that people really consider getting the vaccine.”

He says a lot also depends on how well people follow the health guidelines, like distancing and wearing masks.
