COVID-19 vaccine has been provided to 66% of Minnesota's senior citizens, bringing the state within days of reaching its 70% target to expand eligibility to people with certain high-risk health conditions and food plant workers.

The state hadn't expected to reach this next priority group until April, but its timetable hadn't factored in the addition of the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Nearly 1.1 million people in Minnesota have received COVID-19 vaccine, which has been given first to health care workers, educators, long-term care facility residents and senior citizens.
