NEWS on COVID-19 in Minnesota: COVID-19 vaccinations start this week in Minnesota, supplies down next week

“More than 1,000 health care workers were vaccinated against COVID-19 this week in Minnesota, but the good news was offset by a 45% drop in the expected supply of vaccine to the state next week.

Minnesota received 46,800 doses of the new Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine as planned this week, but learned that it would be receiving only 33,150 doses next week compared with the 58,000 it had anticipated.

Reduced deliveries upset state health officials across the country, because it will delay the use of vaccine against a pandemic wave that surged in the Midwest this fall and is radiating across the country.

Minnesota has reported 391,889 diagnosed infections with the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 as well as 4,723 deaths, including 65 deaths reported on Friday.”
