North Dakota leads the nation in vaccine rollout



N.D. – North Dakota health professionals have administered 67.6% of the COVID-19 vaccine doses the state has received, putting the state at first place in the nation for a swift vaccine rollout.

But how many people will want the vaccine in the subsequent priority groups is still up in the air.

“I know some people still have a lot of questions about the vaccine and we want to make sure that people are weighing the risks of getting COVID-19 with the benefits and risks of vaccination,” said State Immunization Program Manager Molly Howell.

Howell said, for most people, the risks associated with getting COVID-19 is far greater than getting the vaccine.
