Biden lauds Minnesota for 'meeting the moment' on vaccinations
May 12, 2021
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.
