WMC Wants Manufacturers Added To Phase 1B Vaccine Recommendation

(Wisconsin) The state’s biggest business group is again urging the Department of Health Services to add over 380-thousand manufacturing workers to the second phase of COVID-19 vaccine distribution. Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce President and CEO Kurt Bauer argued manufacturers have been essential in making personal protective equipment for hospitals and businesses, and that it’s “unacceptable” to put prisoners ahead of workers in manufacturing. Last week, the state’s medical advisory committee approved a recommendation for the second phase that included people in congregate living spaces, including prisoners.
