MADISON, Wis. (AP) — University of Wisconsin officials say student vaccination rates for COVID-19 vary widely among the system’s campuses.
At the Madison campus, 91% of students are fully vaccinated, the highest number among the system’s universities.
The lowest number of vaccinated students are at UW-Parkside where 38% have been inoculated.
Other campuses range from 75% at La Crosse to 46% at Stevens Point.
UW System interim President Tommy Thompson has recently been touring campuses around the state to promote a scholarship drawing aimed at encouraging students to get vaccinated during the fall semester.
