New vaccine dashboard

Gov. Tim Walz's administration Tuesday launched a new online dashboard that shows the progress of the state's COVID-19 vaccine distribution and administration effort.

The dashboard shows the number of doses allocated to the state by the federal government, how many doses were shipped to Minnesota providers, and how many Minnesotans have so far received the vaccine.

More than 140,000 Minnesotans have received at least one dose of vaccine. Over 7,000 people have completed their two-shot vaccination series.

Two doses of the same vaccine product — separated by up to four weeks — is required for full inoculation.

As of Tuesday, the CDC has allocated 541,100 doses of COVID-19 to Minnesota. Of those doses, 329,450 have been shipped to providers in Minnesota. Another 100,500 doses were shipped to Minnesota pharmacies for the CDC's "Pharmacy Partnership Program for vaccination in long-term care settings."
