Gov. Tim Walz announced today that Minnesota has administered more than 1 million COVID-19 vaccinations across the state,
Roughly 12.9% — 728,081 people — have received at least one dose of vaccine. About 5% of the state — 286,543 people — is fully vaccinated, according to Minnesota Department of Health data. That’s the capacity of U.S. Bank stadium more than four times over.
The state announced on Thursday vaccine registration for all Minnesotans via the COVID-19 Vaccine Connector. All residents who have not been vaccinated are encouraged to sign up. Read more about the Connector here.
Currently, Minnesota is vaccinating people 65 and older, healthcare workers, pre-K through grade 12 educators and child care workers.
As of Feb. 19, 477,287 Minnesotans have tested positive for COVID-19 and 6,412 have died — eight deaths confirmed in the past day.
“We don’t have enough doses for everyone to get the vaccine right now,” Walz said. “But when your time comes, Minnesota, roll up your sleeve, get your shot, and we’ll get to the finish line, together.”
