KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Nearly 17-thousand Kenosha County residents have received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine-nearly 10 percent of the population. However less than two percent had received both of the required doses of the vaccine.

Kenosha County’s goal is 75 percent of the population to reach herd immunity-or about 127-thousand-five hundred people with two doses received. Still Kenosha’s overall infection rate is much lower than the highs late last year.
