MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin health officials have decided to make COVID-19 vaccinations available for the general public 16 years and older starting today.  State health officials had planned to open up vaccinations to the general public on May 1. But case rates in Wisconsin have been rising over the past two weeks, mirroring a national rise in infections.  Before, health care workers, people over 65, nursing home residents and staff, educators and people with existing health conditions were eligible for coronavirus vaccines.
