MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) reports four out of every 10 residents in Wisconsin have received a COVID-19 vaccine. As of Sunday, the DHS reports 40.2% of the states population has received at least one dose of the vaccine, which equals 2,339,142 people. Thats an increase of 28,085 people from Saturdays report.
Meanwhile, the state says another 34,474 residents completed their vaccine series, bringing Wisconsins percentage of fully vaccinated people to 27.5%, or 1,603,795 residents.
So far, the DHS reports a total of 3,870,751 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Wisconsin. This comes on the same day the Centers for Disease Control announced that half of all adults in the United States have received at least one COVID-19 shot. Federal officials say almost 130 million people who are 18 or older have received at least one dose of a vaccine, which equals about 50.4% of the total adult population.
County by county vaccine rates will be found below.
Vaccinations by percentage of age group, as of Sunday:
Meanwhile, the DHS revised the states death toll by two, lowering it to 6,709 Sunday. State officials revised the death toll in Sawyer and Washington Counties, lowering each by one. The 6,709 deaths continue to make up 1.14% of all confirmed cases in Wisconsin. Although the state lowered the death toll, it wasnt enough to move Wisconsins seven day death average, which held steady from Saturday at five deaths per day.
The revision comes as the state crosses the 590,000 cumulative case total since February 5 of 2020. The agency reports another 518 new coronavirus cases were confirmed Sunday. New cases were reported in 43 of Wisconsins 72 counties. The state also revised case counts in seven other counties (Walworth, Vilas, Sheboygan, Shawano, Richland, Jefferson and Iowa).
According to the DHS, the new cases are out of 4,507 results from people testing positive or being tested for the first time, or 11.49% of those results. The 7-day average for the positivity rate, which includes those who have had more than one test done, dropped to 3.5% after holding steady at 3.6% for two straight days.
Wisconsin has now seen a cumulative total of 590,458 confirmed coronavirus cases, and is on pace to reach a milestone 600,000 confirmed cases in the next two weeks if the spread of the disease doesnt slow.
The state is averaging 736 new cases per day for the past week. After increasing to 823 on April 14, it has declined daily. The states percentage of active cases -- people diagnosed in the past 30 days who arent medically cleared dropped to 1.5%.
The number of hospitalizations in the past 24 hours is well below average, with 34 patients admitted for COVID-19. The 7-day hospital admission average increased to 60 after holding steady at 58 the past two days.

The latest numbers from the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) show there are 318 patients in 136 hospitals across the state, eight fewer than Saturday. However, the number of ICU patients in those same hospitals increased by nine, for a total of 91.
Fox Valley hospitals report they are treating 18 COVID-19 patients, with 6 in ICU. Thats two fewer overall patients and two new ICU patients than Saturday.
10 hospitals in the Northeast region are treating 27 COVID-19 patients, including 6 in ICU. Thats five fewer overall patients and one new ICU patient since Saturday.
For hospital readiness, the WHA reports 275 ICU beds were available in the states hospitals (18.75% of the states supply). A total 2,128 of all hospital beds are available -- ICU, intermediate care, medical surgical and negative-flow isolation (19.04%).
The Fox Valley regions 13 hospitals have 11 ICU beds available among them (10.55%), and 90 total open beds total (10.2%).
The 10 hospitals in the Northeast region had 41 ICU beds (19.8%) and 257 of all bed types (26.88%) open.
These beds are for all patients, not just COVID-19. We use terms like open or available, but a hospital can only put a patient in a bed if it has the staff to care for them, including doctors, nurses and food services.

Michigans Upper Peninsula **
* Cases and deaths are from the daily DHS COVID-19 reports, which may differ from local health department numbers. The DHS reports cases from all health departments within a countys boundaries, including tribal, municipal and county health departments; county websites may not. Also, public health departments update their data at various times, whereas the DHS freezes the numbers it receives by the same time every day to compile the afternoon report.
CDC GUIDANCE ON GATHERINGS
The Centers for Disease Control have announced that fully vaccinated Americans can gather with other vaccinated people indoors without wearing a mask or social distancing.
The CDCs recommendations also say vaccinated people can come together in the same way in a single household -- with people considered at low-risk for severe disease, such as in the case of vaccinated grandparents visiting healthy children and grandchildren.
The CDC is continuing to recommend that fully vaccinated people still wear well-fitted masks, avoid large gatherings, and physically distance themselves from others when out in public. The CDC also advised vaccinated people to get tested if they develop symptoms that could be related to COVID-19.
COVID-19 TRACING APP
Wisconsins COVID-19 tracing app, Wisconsin Exposure Notification, is available for iOS and Android smartphones. No download is required for iPhones. The Android app is available on Google Play. When two phones with the app (and presumably their owners) are close enough, for long enough, theyll anonymously share a random string of numbers via Bluetooth. If someone tests positive for the coronavirus, theyll receive a code to type into the app. If your phones pinged each other in the last 14 days, youll receive a push notification that you are at risk of exposure. The app doesnt collect personal information or location information, so you wont know from whom or where, but you will be told what day the exposure might have occurred so that you can quarantine for the appropriate amount of time.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified these as possible symptoms of COVID-19:
