The state passed a milestone on Friday as the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported more than 10 million COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the state since the beginning of the pandemic. 

Nearly 2.6 million — about a quarter – of the vaccine doses are booster doses. More than 3.7 million, or 64.6%, of people have received one dose of vaccine, nearly 3.6 million, or 61.5%, have received two doses, and more than 2 million, or 35.1%, of residents are boosted. 

Roughly 59% of all vaccine doses were Pfizer, while about 38% were Moderna, and the remaining 3% were Johnson & Johnson.

Throughout July, the total number of vaccine doses administered per week has increased on a weekly basis starting July 3.
