The state has reported an average of just 4,769 people per day who got their first shot of a vaccine in the last week.
MDH says 2,715,622 Minnesotans, roughly 48.8 percent of the population, have completed a vaccine series. About 60.8 percent of state residents are fully vaccinated.
Seven more Minnesotans have died of COVID-19, the Minnesota Department of Health said Thursday.
According to the most recent data available, 2,972,489 people in Minnesota, or 53.4 percent of the population, have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
The Minnesota Department of Health also reports that the seven-day case positivity average is 2.3 percent, the lowest since the pandemic began.
As of Saturday, the most recent day of data available, 2,964,813 people in Minnesota, or 53.3 percent of the population, had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
The most common complaint: persistent fatigue. A Mayo Clinic study published last month found that 80% of long-haulers complained of fatigue and nearly half of “brain fog.”
After a stretch of increased vaccinations, Minnesota has reported fewer than 5,000 first shots given for three days in a row.
The Minnesota Department of Health also reported that Black and Latino Minnesotans have seen some of the highest increases in vaccination rates over the last week of available data, though they still lag behind white residents.
The most recent data available show 79 Minnesotans are hospitalized in intensive care with COVID-19, and 170 are in the hospital with COVID-19 not in intensive care.
According to the most recent data available, 2,900,110 people in Minnesota — 64 percent of those 16 and older — had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Roughly 57.7 percent of Minnesotans age 16 and older are now fully vaccinated.
Overall, 64 percent of Minnesotans age 16 and over have received at least one dose of a vaccine, though the rate drops to 61.1 percent for those living in areas with a high social vulnerability index.
The seven-day case positivity rate, which lags by a week, is 4.2 percent — below the 5-percent threshold state officials say is a concerning sign of disease spread.
As of Saturday, 51.4 percent of the population had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
“We need to realize that we all make mistakes,” said Moen. “We’re all working under different timelines. We should try to have grace for ourselves and others.”
MDH also reports that roughly 55.2 percent of state residents 16 and older are fully vaccinated.
More than 70 percent of cases in Minnesota are now believed to be the more transmissible B117 variant.
The state also reports that 2,349,214 people, or 42 percent of the population, have been completely vaccinated.
The seven-day case positivity average, which lags by a week, is 5.7 percent, down from 5.9 percent the week prior.
