MILWAUKEE – The disease burden in the City of Milwaukee this week is 609.7 new positive COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people over seven days, down from 1,240.7 last week, and remains in the “extreme transmission” category. The percentage of positive COVID-19 test results decreased to 19.3% and remains in the “extreme transmission” category.

Currently, 61.9% of city of Milwaukee adults 16 years and older are fully vaccinated and 67.3% have received at least their first dose. Additionally, 41.9% of fully vaccinated individuals have received a booster dose. 11.7% of children ages 5 to 11 have completed their pediatric COVID-19 vaccine series and 18.6% have received at least one dose.

“The COVID-19 vaccine protects you and your community from contracting, spreading, or becoming seriously ill, hospitalized, or dying from COVID-19,” said Milwaukee Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson. “It is our strongest tool to achieve a healthy Milwaukee, and we highly encourage everyone eligible to seek out a vaccine or booster dose as soon as possible. Protecting the community from the COVID-19 virus requires us all to do our part to care for one another.”

The Milwaukee Health Department COVID-19 sites at the Northwest Health Center, Southside Health Center, and Menomonee Valley continue to have COVID-19 tests, vaccines, and booster doses available six days per week. Locations and hours can be found at Milwaukee.gov/covidvax.
