University of Wisconsin President: University can take over COVID-19 vaccinations

By: | January 8, 2021

The University of Wisconsin System has tested nearly 200,000 people for the coronavirus in just two months. Now the school’s president is saying they can vaccinate everyone in the state in the next three.

UW President Tommy Thompson said the university can take over the state’s slow-to-start coronavirus vaccination program.

“We could set it up on our campuses,” Thompson said. “We have nursing students, nursing deans, individuals qualified to administer vaccines. We could do it the same way as testing, and vaccinate as many people as needed.”
