Re: Amdmnt 1 -In Wisconsin, covid has spread at unparalleled rates inside jails and prisons. Outbreaks inside prisons affect the communities these prisons are part of, and hospital capacity in rural areas that prisons are mostly in, is very limited.

Following CDC recommendations for administration of the vaccine is essential. Don't allow politics and money to allocate these important resources. Keep politics out of these life saving priorities.

We appreciate the bill's intent to make sure the vaccine is utilized as quickly as possible. However, we believe the source of the issue is a lack of vaccine supply. Once supply is sufficient, the challenge will be enough workforce to administer.

While this bill seeks to speed up vaccinations, the real issue appears to be lack of supply and shortage of workforce to administer. We also oppose Amendment 1 limiting vaccination of inmates.
