Nick Novak Says Manufacturing Workers Should be Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine on CBS58

MILWAUKEE РGovernor Tony Evers announced Friday, March 12, all Wisconsinites will be eligible for a vaccine May 1. While many of us will have to wait until then, the 1C vaccine group is expected to be eligible by the end of this month.

DHS has now added restaurant workers to the groups eligible in 1C. But factory workers are still absent.

Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce says that is a mistake.

“The CDC said that manufacturing workers should be in phase 1B,” said WMC spokesperson Nick Novak. “Manufacturing workers don’t have the ability to work from home. And a lot of manufacturing workers shifted production over to making PPE.”
