City of Milwaukee Weekly COVID-19 Update

MILWAUKEE – The disease burden in the City of Milwaukee this week is 177.4 new positive COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people over seven days and remains in the “extreme transmission” category. The percentage of positive COVID-19 test results is 13.9% and remains in the “extreme transmission” category. Additionally, based on U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, Milwaukee County remains in the Medium COVID-19 Community Level.

Currently, 65% of city of Milwaukee adults 16 years and older are fully vaccinated, and 49.7% of fully vaccinated individuals have received a booster dose. Of children ages 5 to 11, 20.9% have completed their pediatric COVID-19 vaccine series and 25.2% have received at least one dose.

The importance of vaccinating children against COVID-19 remains crucial, especially as parents and caregivers start looking toward protecting their children in the upcoming school year. Both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines require multiple doses spaced weeks apart:

  • Children 6 months – 4 years old:
    • Pfizer: Three-dose primary series. First and second doses spaced three weeks apart. Third dose separated by an additional eight weeks.
    • Moderna: Two-dose primary series, spaced four weeks apart
  • Children 5 – 17 years old:
    • Pfizer: Two-dose primary series, spaced three weeks apart
    • Moderna: Two-dose primary series, spaced four weeks apart

To ensure children are protected against COVID-19 before the start of the school year, parents and caregivers should prioritize vaccination as soon as possible. The COVID-19 vaccines can be safely administered concurrently with other required childhood immunizations. The COVID-19 vaccination sites at the Northwest Health Center and Southside Health Center have COVID-19 and routine childhood immunizations available for everyone 6 months and older with no appointment necessary. Locations and hours of operation for Milwaukee Health Department COVID-19 sites available at Milwaukee.gov/COVIDvax.

Wisconsin Ave.) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Both Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines and boosters will be available to anyone 6 months of age and older with no appointment.
