(WBAY) - More than 3.1 million people in Wisconsin are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) reports 10,528 more vaccine doses were delivered since Thursday’s report.

Vaccinators reported 3,650 people receiving a COVID-19 vaccine dose for the first time -- and 6,600 shots completed people’s vaccinations, either with their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the single dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

There have been more COVID-19 cases recorded in Wisconsin so far this week than were during the entirety of June and July combined.

Health officials have confirmed 13,712 new COVID-19 cases so far this week, bringing the new total ever reported up to 712,827. Department of Health Services data show that there were 9,508 cases in July and 2,977 in June, for a total of 12,485 cases.

The positivity rate’s rolling average slipped, too, from 7.5% to 7.4% of all test results in the past week being positive for the COVID-19 virus.

In its last report for the week, the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) found 1,072 patients hospitalized statewide, a net decrease of 43 from Thursday once discharges and deaths are taken into account.

They’re treating 110 COVID-19 patients, 5 fewer than Thursday, with 35 of them in ICU, which is an increase of 3.

The Winnebago County Health Department will have vaccine available for everyone age 12 and up.

People will get the Pfizer vaccine, and clinics for their second dose will be held three weeks later.

On top of encouraging people to get vaccinated against COVID-19, health officials are also urging people to get vaccinated against the flu as soon as possible, so that overwhelmed hospitals don’t have to deal with flu cases in addition to the COVID-19 cases.
