The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has received eleven cases of teenagers and young adults hospitalized with severe lung disease that have been linked to recent vaping.  Seven additional cases are now under investigation. Counties with confirmed cases include Door, Racine, Walworth, Dodge, Waukesha, and Winnebago.  Patients are being interviewed, all of whom reported recent vaping.  Disease investigators continue to gather information about the names and types of vape products that were used in hopes of determining a common link, said Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm.
