Wisconsin is launching a mobile coronavirus vaccination program next week to be operated by the Wisconsin National Guard and health officials.

Gov. Tony Evers announced the effort Friday.

Evers says nine mobile labs will be dispatched across the state starting on Tuesday. They will be staffed by members of the National Guard as well as pharmacy and nursing student volunteers through a partnership with the University of Wisconsin System.

As of Friday, 213,056 people had been vaccinated in the state, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services said. To date, nearly 516,000 people have tested positive for COVID-19 and 5,290 have died.
