As of Monday, 722,859 people who are 65 or older have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, which is about 84% of Minnesotans in that age group. While new cases and hospitalizations are up, deaths from the virus remain relatively low compared to the higher case counts. Of the three deaths reported Tuesday, all were people in their 60s, and none were residents of long-term care facilities. The people who died were from Chisago, Stearns and Wright counties.
Overall, about 2.1 million Minnesotans have received at least one dose of the vaccine and about 1.4 million have been fully vaccinated through Monday. About 46% of new cases of the virus can’t be traced to known outbreaks or other cases as of April 4, according to MDH data. That’s the highest community transmission has been since the pandemic reached Minnesota in March last year.
