Minnesota vaccine supply shifting as some providers run out of demand


April 16, 2021


Mike Babcock, 38, of St. Paul, spoke to nurse Matt Brenner after receiving a dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine last month at the Minneapolis VA.

Nearly 50% of eligible Minnesotans 16 and older have received COVID-19 vaccine, but state leaders said it will take new, targeted strategies to avoid a vaccination wall and get the state to its 80% goal.

Gov. Tim Walz toured Workabilities Inc. in Golden Valley on Thursday as 300 workers and clients with developmental disabilities received their second doses of COVID-19 vaccine. While mass vaccination sites continue, Walz said some people need local opportunities to receive shots in places they know and trust.

"Making it as easy and barrier-free as possible for people to get [vaccine] will get us there," he said.
