MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – Wisconsin continues on pace to reach 1 million residents fully vaccinated against COVID-19 early next week.

The Department of Health Services reported Saturday that 978,416 people have completed their vaccinations -- whether that’s one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

That’s 29,651 more people completing their vaccinations since to Friday’s report. The state is averaging 20,433 residents getting fully vaccinated every day over the past 7 days.

Currently, 16.8% of Wisconsin’s population is fully vaccinated. That’s more than 1 in 6 people.

Data show the state usually sees a drop in vaccinations over the weekend, so that 1 million milestone will most likely be reached Monday or Tuesday.

So far, 1,674,882 Wisconsin residents had at least one shot of a COVID-19 vaccine. That’s almost 40,000 more (39,905) than vaccinators reported Friday and represents 28.8% of the population.

The 7-day average was close to a record for all COVID-19 vaccinations, including residents and non-residents. Vaccinators reported an additional 68,558 doses administered since Friday. That’s 10,000 fewer doses than Friday, but the 7-day average of 55,566 shots a day is just a couple hundred shy of Friday’s record.

Vaccination numbers for Northeast Wisconsin counties appear later in this article.

1 in 3 Wisconsin women received at least one dose of a vaccine compared to just under 1 in 4 men.
