Minnesota Has Reached Biden’s Vaccine Goal of 70% Before Independence Day
MINNESOTA DOES IT
Believe it or not, according to information from the Centers for Disease Control, 3,034,281 Minnesotans over the age of 18 have had at least one COVID-19 Vaccine dose, which helped President Joe Biden reach the 70% Population vaccinated by his July 4th self-imposed deadline.
Governor Walz said:
“This is a remarkable achievement, and a credit to every Minnesotan who has rolled up their sleeves to get their vaccine and protect themselves and their communities."
According to the Governor's office, Minnesota is now the 2nd state to reach the 70% goal in the Midwest.
The fact that Minnesota has reached this goal doesn't mean that they are slowing efforts to encourage everyone to get vaccinated. In fact, over the next two weeks, there will be more than 80 community events being hosted across the state, to encourage people who have not yet been vaccinated, to help protect the population. Walk-in appointments are being accepted at all of the state COVID-19 Community Vaccination Program sites.
