Wisconsin was the first state to allow vaccinations for the public, and now, the state has also become the first to roll out the new, federally funded vaccine for the pandemic.
The state has been testing the vaccine since mid-January, and the state health department announced the new vaccines Monday.
Scott Walker, who has called for the vaccine, has been lobbying the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help the state with its vaccine testing.
But many Republicans have questioned whether the state’s new vaccinations should be covered by the federal government’s health care coverage program, known as the Affordable Care Act.
Walker said last week that he wants the vaccine to be available to everyone, but his administration has not yet provided details about what that would mean.
Wisconsin was one of a handful of states to opt out of the program.
A spokeswoman for the governor’s office told VICE News that the state did not want to put Wisconsin on the list because of the federal program’s requirement that states get a certain number of vaccinated people.
“This would be a mistake,” said Heather Rauch, the spokeswoman for Gov.
“It’s really about public health, and we’ve been really good at it.”
Walker said at a press conference last week, “I think it’s great, and it’s a good idea.
I don’t want to have people be on the streets.
I want them to get vaccinated.”
But critics said the vaccine could lead to an increase in deaths in the state and a rise in costs to the state, which is already under a budget crisis.
As of Monday, the Wisconsin health department reported that the total cost of the vaccines was $2.4 million, including $1.5 million for testing and $600,000 for administering the shots.
Wisconsin’s Department of Health said it has not received the vaccine.
In Wisconsin, the vaccine is made by an outside company called Axosys.
The company was selected to produce the vaccine because the company was able to find a supplier who had the required equipment, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
Axosks vaccines were approved in April and May of this year, and are now being tested in Wisconsin, as well as Minnesota, Colorado, and Arizona, according the Wisconsin Health Department.
