Kenosha Common Council Calls For Free Covid Vaccines
December 9, 2020 8:21AM CST
KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–The Kenosha Common Council approved a resolution this week that asks state leaders to provide the Covid-19 vaccine for free.
The measure passed on a 17-0 vote. While plans for vaccine distribution are still in the works, who pays for the vaccine remains unclear. The resolution asks the governor and others to investigate all budget options to pay for the shots.
The resolution’s sponsor, 16th district Alderman Dominic Ruffalo told WLIP that he wants to make sure cost is not a hurdle for those who want the vaccine.
Wisconsin is set to receive around 50-thousand doses of the Pfizer vaccine by the middle of this month. It could be several months before any vaccine is made widely available.
