According to an ongoing report by The Associated Press and The Marshall Project, Wisconsin is among the states with the highest total number of coronavirus cases in its prison system. However, in its October draft report to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Wisconsin failed to release its plan detailing when the vaccine is planned to be distributed to prisoners. After the first wave of vaccinations, Wisconsin is still deciding on the shot priority list. Families of inmates and those in the prison system are begging state officials to consider the high transmission risk prisoners face, and to recognize the havoc that the virus has wreaked on Wisconsin prisoners thus far.
