Minnesota COVID-19 vaccine rollout lagging behind neighboring states, reports show

(snip)

But he rollout for the prioritized groups — such as health care workers and those in long-term care facilities — still has a long way to go.

The latest count from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows 9.5 million vaccines were delivered but only 1 million Americans have received injections so far.

Minnesota isn’t moving as quickly as some neighboring states.

The Minnesota Department of Health's latest report from earlier this week shows about 3,000 people have received the Pfizer vaccine out of nearly 47,000 doses.

A vaccine tracker from Johns Hopkins University shows neighboring states are making progress more quickly.

North Dakota has vaccinated 12,990 — 1,087 people were vaccinated on Christmas Eve. South Dakota is reaching the 10,000 mark, with nearly 1,400 vaccinated on Thursday. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services reports more than 10,000 people in the state had been vaccinated as of Sunday.

Iowa has not yet reported official numbers.

Federal officials, however, say they're hoping to have 200 million vaccine doses delivered by the end of March.

1. Shitty KSTP reporting, as usual.

There were shipping and reporting delays, which was why they were able to vaccinate only (a reported) 3,000. A lot more will be done starting Monday.

Of the 79,950 Pfizer doses that have arrived or are on the way, the shots are slated for 135 hospitals, 52 pharmacies and 57 local public health agencies. All of the doses have been given to hospital workers.

Nearly 3,000 health care workers have been vaccinated so far, although that number is likely higher due to reporting delays. Many facilities didn't get the vaccine until Friday.

2. My niece and a lot (maybe most) or her coworkers got their shots last Tuesday.

Niece posted a picture on Facebook titled "Getting my Bill Gates Microchip implanted". (Then explained it was the vaccine for the sake of any of our less than bright relatives which, sadly there are a few.)
