Wisconsin DHS Continues to Move at the Pace of Bureaucracy

Note that all they are saying is that old folks are on the list. They aren’t committing to when they might actually receive the vaccine. Their blame of the federal government is a lie since they haven’t even administered half of the doses they already have. But the main point is that they are still deciding the priority list a full six weeks AFTER the vaccine was approved. As I said in my column yesterday, these are decisions that could have been made in a thoughtful afternoon. For all of their insistence that citizens upend their lives because of the emergency, Evers’ bureaucracy moves at its own pace.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Everyone over age 65 in Wisconsin will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting on Monday, a group of 700,000 people that is more expansive than originally envisioned to be next in line for the shot, the state Department of Health Services said Tuesday.


The department also cautioned that the speed of vaccinations depends on how much vaccine the state receives from the federal government. Wisconsin receives about 70,000 doses of first-dose vaccine each week; at that pace, it could take months to vaccinate the new group.


“Wisconsin systems and operations are ready to vaccinate more people,” said Andrea Palm, the secretary of the state Department of Health Services, who is leaving her post on Wednesday. ”The amount of vaccine we get from the federal government will determine how quickly we can get these groups vaccinated.”

    Well, they committed a time to my wife and I, next Wednesday, 8:00am.

  2. Jason

    Uhm, Congrats? Not sure why you’re flexing here with that info Leroy, other than you’re Leroy.

  3. Mar

    Yes, Jason, he is so proud that he had to post this twice.
    But if it were not for President Trump, he would never be getting it.

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    I did that because most folks here are such slow learners, and need repetition to learn something new. As evidenced by the headline (above).

    Hope that all of you eligible signed up. The sooner we get to herd immunity, in trumpspeak “herd mentality”, the sooner we can get back to whatever normal is.

    Be safe, be smart.

    >I did that because most folks here are such slow learners, and need repetition to learn something new.

    So you are switching from flexing to couching your statement as a teaching moment – with a single anecdotal data point? You’re full of shit Leroy.

  6. Le Roi du Nord

    Sorry j, the “couching” is the realm of the grand k.

    My personal belief is that no one is too stubborn, too hidebound, too challenged, to learn something new. But every day folks like you try to prove me wrong. But hope springs eternal.

    No go get your vaccine.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    Sorry, that should be “now”.

  8. Jason

    >Sorry j, the “couching” is the realm of the grand k.

    Obviously not, Mr Facts and Science and Truths.

  9. Mar

    Of course, the sociopath could be lying.
    Especially since there is a shortage of vaccines.

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    Well mar, I’ll let you know. As of right now, I’m scheduled to get the first shot next Wednesday, as is my wife. You?

  11. Mar

    Well, of course, you make ght have you used your influence as county dog poop picker upper, err, alleged county supervisor, to get to the head of the line

  12. Mar

    “make ght ” or should have been “might”.
    Hate this new phone.

  13. Le Roi du Nord

    Wrong again mar, in more ways than one. Pretty routine for you these days.

    I’m sure the phone feels the same about you.

  14. Mar

    Still awaiting for my apologies from you, for lying about me, pervert sociopath

  15. Jason

    >I’m sure the phone feels the same about you.

    Could you cite the statute, CFR, or other law that makes you think phones (or any other object) has feelings? Thanks

  16. Le Roi du Nord


    None needed, as I didn’t claim there was one. I’m glad to see you exercise your constitution right to be as ignorant as you choose.


    Since you won’t specify the lie, I can’t apologize for something that didn’t happen.

  17. Tuerqas

    “I did that because most folks here are such slow learners, and need repetition to learn something new. As evidenced by the headline (above).”

    So you don’t hate anyone, you just have contempt for most people here. Got it.

  18. Le Roi du Nord

    No T, no contempt either. Everybody still has a right to learn or not, although some take that to an extreme based on ideology.

    But if you want to discuss “content”, there are enough folks you can chat with here, until you disagree with them. Then they will call you a liar, murderer, or worse. Enjoy.

  19. Le Roi du Nord

    Sorry, “.contempt” in 2nd para.

  20. Tuerqas

    Le Roi, if it talks like a duck and walks like a duck, it is a bloody likely to be a duck. Do you like comparing yourself to Trump? Trump said many outlandish, slanderous, unlikely and mean things. When he then turns around and says things like ‘I am the least racist person in the room.’ are we all supposed to believe him? Do you? How is what you said above any different? Nord and Trump, brother ducks.

  21. Mar

    “Nord and Trump, brother ducks.”
    Now, that’s funny.
