Biden lauds Minnesota for 'meeting the moment' on vaccinations


LEILA NAVIDI • Star Tribune

Matt Anderson of West St Paul got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at the St. Paul Saints home opener in St. Paul on Tuesday.

Hours after talking with President Joe Biden and select governors about ways to show the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination, Gov. Tim Walz stood on the sunbathed terrace at CHS Field in St. Paul and marveled at a prime example.

"Why would you not be out here on a night like this watching baseball?" said Walz, in a Minnesota Twins jersey mismatched with a St. Paul Saints cap. "We need to continue to try to incentivize them."

Biden earlier Tuesday invited Walz and five other governors from states with high rates of COVID-19 vaccination to discuss their successes and strategies to overcome recent slowdowns in public interest.
