The Minnesota Department of Health has created a new page on their Covid-19 web page. The new site includes information on:Data on number of vaccines administered in Minnesota, vaccine distribution and who is getting vaccinated. The site address is https://mn.gov/covid19/vaccine/index.jsp

The dashboard, produced by Minnesota IT Services (MNIT) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), provides a visual and user-friendly way to view key vaccination data for our state. The dashboard includes information on the number of doses promised (allocated) to the state by the federal government; shipped to Minnesota providers; and administered to Minnesotans. The dashboard will be updated daily.

As of Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has promised 541,100 doses of COVID-19 to Minnesota. Of those doses, 329,450 have been shipped to providers in Minnesota along with 100,500 doses shipped to pharmacies participating in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Pharmacy Partnership Program for vaccination in long-term care settings.

There is currently a limited amount of vaccine available to states from the federal government. Once doses are promised to states, it takes several days before those doses are actually shipped, so it can be a week or more before they actually arrive at their final destination and can be given to people. Vaccine is moving throughout the state, but the process takes time. The dashboard will help Minnesotans see where we are at by showing progress at different stages of the process.

More than 140,000 Minnesotans have received at least one dose of vaccine. Over 7,000 people have completed their vaccination series. For currently available vaccines, a complete series is two doses of the same vaccine product separated by three or four weeks depending on the vaccine. These numbers are reflected in the dashboard.
